      Costs when shipping large packages with Cargoboard

      When sending large parcels with Cargoboard, the cost depends largely on the pick-up and destination locations, as well as the chosen mode of transport and the unit weight.


      With our price calculator on our platform, you can calculate your individual shipping costs for a package in real time by simply entering your shipment details.

      Send 40kg and 50kg packages

      When shipping heavy packages, many consumers and businesses encounter challenges. Especially if you want to send a 40 kg or 50 kg parcel, choosing the right service provider is crucial.


      Standard parcel services such as DHL have a weight limit of 31.5 kg, which may be insufficient for some shipments. Cargoboard offers a flexible and effective alternative here, because there is no fixed upper limit for the total weight. We offer a variety of transportation options including less-than-truckload, part-load, full-load and direct.


      For shipments by general cargo, the upper limit is a total weight of 3,000 kg and a maximum of 6 pallet spaces. For the other types of transport, the maximum weight is determined by the loading capacity of the truck. Also with these transport options, an important point is that shipments with a unit weight of 30 kg or more must be transported on a pallet.

      Packing large packages correctly

      If you want to send oversized parcels, parcel shipping packaging is very important to ensure the protection of the contents. Large packages can be damaged during transport if they are not properly packed.


      Therefore, use sturdy cardboard boxes and fill them with cushioning materials such as bubble wrap or foam. Make sure the package is properly sealed to prevent the contents from moving. Durable adhesive tape is suitable for this purpose. Pay attention to any empty spaces that appear and fill them in as well.


      We also recommend placing several layers of cushioning material between the shipped goods and the outer shell of the box.


      Finally, make sure that the package must be transported on a pallet from a weight of 30 kg.

      Do you have all the documents at hand?

      If you want to send large packages to a third country such as Switzerland or the United Kingdom, you will need additional documents.


      Therefore, make sure that you have prepared all the necessary documents before you hand over the delivery to us. Because only in this way can Cargoboard ensure that smooth transport is possible.


      If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our customs staff. They will help you provide all the necessary paperwork.
