Weights and dimensions of each element of a parcel (including packaging):

  • Real or spatial weight of the element is greater than 31.5 kg, but no more than 1,000 kg (with a pallet).
  • Maximum weight of the element, which is not placed on a pallet, is 50 kg.
  • Weight and dimensions of the packaging without a pallet are included in the weight and dimensions of the element.
  • The sum of sides (length + width + height) exceeds 3 m, even if the element weight is not greater than 31.5 kg.
  • Maximum dimensions of a single element:
    - Length 4 m or
    - Height up to 2.1 m (including e.g. a pallet) or
    - The sum of all sides is no more than 6 m
  • The maximum number of elements of a parcel: 5 pieces.
  • Consolidated goods on a pallet are treated as a single element.
  • For each element we calculate:
    - The spatial weight by means of the following formula:
       [length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm)]/4,000 or 1 m3 of a parcel = 250 kg.
    - Length-based weight by means of the following formula: 1 linear metre = 100 kg.
  • An element longer than 2 m and shorter than 4 m is considered a separate parcel that requires a separate consignment note and its real weight may not exceed 50 kg.
  • The maximum weight of a parcel (real or spatial) is 2,500 kg.

                             

Reception and delivery:

  • The service is provided at places available for commercial vehicles, in a "side by side" system.
  • Reception and delivery include placing the parcel on and taking it off an open load-carrying body. The customer is responsible for all additional loading and unloading.
  • As standard, shipments are collected from Monday to Friday and delivered on the following business day or within 2 business days.
  • Arranging a DHL Parcel courier to pick up a parcel is possible by means of the DHL24 application or by phone with the DHL Parcel Customer Service Department.

Charging fees:

  • For DHL PARCEL MAX we charge the fees according to the price list.
  • In order to set the price for the service it is necessary to calculate the distance between the place of shipment and place of delivery, with the use of the distance calculator.
  • For each element we calculate:
     - the spatial weight by means of the following formula: [length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm)]/4,000 or 1 m3 of a parcel = 250 kg,
     - length-based weight by means of the following formula: 1 linear metre = 100 kg.
  • The greater weight is selected (real, spatial or length-based).
  • The price of the multi-element parcel is calculated by adding together the greater weights of individual elements.
