      Calculate online shipping with our shipping calculator

      With our shipping cost calculator you can calculate all costs incurred for your goods shipment with a freight forwarder. Enter the pickup location of the goods and the respective destination of the shipment above and be taken further to the Cargoboard platform.

      In our shipping calculator a europallet (120 cm x 80 cm) is selected by default. The height is 100 cm and the weight is 100 kg. Here you need to estimate how many pallets you need and what height the goods reach on the pallet. After entering the size and weight of your shipment in our shipping calculator, you can view our offers. These price quotations are completely non-binding for you. If you are not satisfied with the prices, you can simply cancel the booking process.

      It makes no difference whether you want to ship your goods nationally or Europe-wide. We are also happy to help you with shipping to countries outside the European Union.

      Shipping costs calculator for shipping by forwarding agent

      In order to be able to calculate the transport price of a freight forwarder, other information is required in addition to the dimensions and weight of a shipment. The pickup location and the shipping location play a big role in calculating the shipping cost.

      In addition to the above factors, you need to know what type of freight forwarding service you want to use to ship your goods. At Cargoboard we distinguish between general cargo, part loads (LTL), full loads (FTL) and direct loads.

      Groupage is the right choice if you want to ship individual pallets or packages as cheaply as possible. LTL and FTL is for our customers who have a lot of goods to ship and need a large area inside a truck for their packages, boxes and pallets. Depending on the chosen method of transport, the price also differs.

      Easy payment when shipping with a forwarding agent

      In addition to the shipping costs, many customers are also interested in how they can pay the shipping costs at Cargoboard. If you are satisfied with the transport price, the system will guide you through the rest of the booking process. You can easily pay at the end of the booking with all common payment methods: Credit card, PayPal, instant bank transfer or direct debit. The purchase on account is reserved for registered customers. Invoicing is possible throughout Europe.

      Tips for cheap shipping with our shipping calculator

      To save on shipping costs when sending your goods, there are a few points you should consider. For a favorable and smooth process, we advise you to pack your goods as space-saving as possible. However, be careful not to understate the weight and dimensions. Otherwise, you may incur additional surcharges. Also, the goods should be securely packed, and not protrude over the edge of the pallet. This is especially true for shipments that are easily damaged, such as a single package. Damaged goods cost shippers, forwarders and consignees money, time and nerves.

      Pack goods as space-saving as possible

      A box or parcel measuring 60 cm x 80 cm x 150 cm should be shipped on a half pallet (one-way pallet 80 cm x 60 cm) for low cost shipping. If, on the other hand, you ship the same package on a Euro pallet, the footprint increases and so does the price of shipping.

      Do not understate the dimensions and weight of your shipment. We can all make mistakes, but too small dimensions and too light weight entail additional costs.

      To ensure that your shipments are sent as cheaply as possible, it is always worth comparing prices. In addition to prices, however, pay attention to customer reviews.

      What can influence the shipping costs?

      A number of factors play an important role in calculating your freight costs.

      1. The transport route can have a big impact on the price. It’s not just about the kilometers driven. Prices may vary depending on the area passed through and in which region the pick-up and destination are located. In the case of freight forwarders, for example, very short trips are relatively expensive. The reason for this is the high fixed costs. The provision of vans and drivers incur costs that are more significant for short trips.
      2. Transport goods: Dangerous goods or harmless pallet goods? The type of goods transported also plays an important role in calculating the price. Do the goods to be transported have to be transported in a specific vehicle? Pallet shipping is usually the transportation option with the lowest cost.
      3. If you book a full load or direct transport, the transport time can be shortened . A consolidated load takes longer to travel, but is less expensive.

      Frequently asked questions

      What do I have to pay attention to in the booking process?

      During the booking process, it is important that in the second step, after entering the pickup and destination, you determine the correct loading and unloading method, so that everything goes without problems during the pickup and delivery.

      In this step, make sure that access at the destination is guaranteed for the selected vehicle, as the shipments are delivered free curbside. There must also be a parking space for the selected vehicle at the loading and unloading point.

      What happens after booking the Express Direct?

      After you have booked your express direct ride through our platform, it's time to prepare.

      You, as the booking customer, will receive an order confirmation and a waybill from us, which you will hand over to the driver picking you up.

      Before the goods are picked up from you, you must take care of transport-safe packaging, so that the goods are optimally prepared for safe transport. Find out how you should pack them in our packing tips.

      If you transport your goods on a pallet, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that it is not possible to exchange pallets for this type of transport.

      What is the difference between general cargo shipping and express direct shipping?

      The key difference is that in an express direct shipment, the shipped goods are transported to the destination by the direct route and without transshipment. In a general cargo shipment, on the other hand, goods are collected in a region, bundled at a central location, transshipped and transported to the destination region. After arrival in the destination region, the goods are reloaded and transported to the final destination.

      Are special trips with same day pickup possible?

      Special trips with same day pickup are also available upon request. For this purpose, please send your request with the loading and unloading point, the exact dimensions of the packages and the weight to the mail address

      How quickly will the order be picked up for an express direct run?

      If you place your order on our platform by 4pm on a business day, we will ensure pickup on the following business day. During the booking process you have the possibility to choose a later pick-up date and one of three time windows.

      How do I find the right vehicle for my job?

      To choose the right vehicle, it is important to pay attention to the method of loading and unloading, as well as the permissible loading capacity. Helpful in answering this question is the table above with the additional notes below it.
