Useful courier information:

When sending items by courier nationally or internationally, it is important to know how couriers work out the cost of sending parcels. All courier companies take into consideration a few factors when calculating charges:

  1. Weight of the parcel – this would be the actual weight of the package for courier.
  2. Volumetric weight – This is best explained as the area in kilograms that the parcel occupies. Volumetric weight is calculated as follows:
    Length (cm) x Height (cm) x Width (cm) ÷ 5000 = KGs
    The greater between Actual Weight and Volumetric Weight will be chargeable.
  3. Regional area or Major Centre – Courier companies will need to know where the parcel is to be picked up and delivered.
    There are different rates according to the area and destination. The list of all the areas in South Africa is very long, so please ask us for a better idea about where your destination falls under.
  4. Delivery time – Depending on how time sensitive your courier is, will depend on what courier service you would need e.g. Same Day or Next Day service. Please let us know if your parcel has a time deadline so that we can best advise you on the correct service.
  5. Dangerous goods – Please let us know what you are sending. Some items are not allowed to be sent for security and safety reason. For example, perfume is flammable and airlines will not allow any flammable items to be sent. Please give as a call to find out if your commodity is safe to be sent
