Proper and adequate packaging is vital
You can choose to pack and label your shipment yourself, or ask us to do it for you.
A strong cardboard box large enough to include sufficient cushioning materials to protect the contents is required. It must be clearly labelled.
The DSV XPress range of packing materials
You can use DSV XPress envelopes and boxes to pack your shipment. They come in different shapes and materials and can be ordered with labels for use with DSV XPress shipments.
Standard DSV XPress and DSV XPress Economy limits
There are no weight limits.
Maximum length of each parcel is 270 cm.
Maximum girth length per parcel is 400 cm (length + 2 x width + 2 x height).
Larger packages are considered DSV XPress Special Services shipments and are handled on request.
Calculation of weight and size
The calculation of price is based on volume weight if it exceeds the actual weight of your shipment.
Calculation of volume weight: Multiply length, width and height of a package (in centimetres). Add the volumes of several individual parcels of a shipment to get the total volume of the shipment. To calculate the volume weight (in kilograms), divide the volume of the shipment by the factor tendered in our quote. Any intermediate results must be rounded up.
