|Picking up||Parcels are collected at the service point indicated in the arrival notification. Parcels are handed over on presentation of an ID.

|Pricing policy||Parcels are priced according to weight and selected extra services. The price of parcels with a volume of more than 0.07 m3 (width m x length m x height m x 250 kg) will be determined according to volume weight. If the length of any one side of a parcel exceeds 1.5 metres or the sum of the longest side + circumference exceeds 2.4 metres, the parcel is considered a large parcel for pricing purposes. The freight for bicycles is determined according to the standard rate for 60 kg. When a single consignment contains several parcels, the freight will be determined according to total weight or total volume weight, which is cheaper than sending all the parcels separately.

Parcels are held free of charge for four days following the date when the arrival notification is sent. After that, a storage charge applies. Parcels are held at the pick-up point for 14 days after which any uncollected parcels will be returned to the consignor at the consignor’s expense unless otherwise agreed. Storage charge
|Limitations||The parcel may not contain any live animals, perishable products or any content in contravention of the General Conditions of Carriage.|
