THE OPTIMUM WEIGHT of a parcel is the highest between the actual, physical weight, established through weighing the parcel on a scale and the volumetric weight (dimensional) which can be calculated depending on the volume of the parcel and its size, according to a specific calculation formula.

You will frequently meet the term of volumetric weight or dimensional when using courier or parcel delivery services. You may have large, not heavy items to send, but for which the volumetric weight exceeds the mass. In these situations, the cost of the transportation is calculated according to the volume of the parcel. The volumetric or dimensional weight is used to calculate the cost of the transportation instead of the physical one.

The transportation price is calculated in report to the highest weight between the real, physical weight and the volumetric weight.

The volumetric weight is calculated according to the formula:

(Length x Width x Height)
divisor 7000

The Length, Width, Height are the sides of the parcel, expressed in centimetres, and “divisor” is the volumetric conversion factor established by our company, depending on the acceptance for large parcels. The reputed international courier services like DHL, UPS, TNT, DPD, FEDEX use as divisors 6000, 5000, 4000 depending on the service and emergency, or even 3000 in case of pallets (so the volumetric weight is exceeded only by very large weights, of hundreds of kilograms).

The delivery services ensured by EASTLINES use as a calculation basis (where it is specified that the prices is established depending on the volumetric weight) the generous 7000 divisor and the parallel services proposed through DPD, for example, take into consideration the dimensional weight by using the 6000 divisor.

Ex: For a large, but not heavy box, with sides 80 cm x 50 cm x 40 cm and the actual (physical) weight of 10 kg, the volumetric weight is 22.85 kg (using the above mentioned formula). If you take into consideration this weight, as being higher than the actual one, the price on kilogram will be multiplied with the dimensional weight (22.85 kg or rounded up to 23 kg) to obtain a final price per parcel.

STANDARD SERVICE

To include a consignment in the standard services, these must comply with several conditions:

STANDARD ENVELOPES
In case your consignment is an envelope (you cannot send more envelopes in the same consignment, you will have to merge them if you want to send more envelopes from the same collection address to the same delivery address) it must have specific dimensions not less than size A4 (29 x 21 cm) and no more than size A3 (42 x 30 cm) and the maximum weight of 1 kg.
Wrap the small objects or documents in corresponding envelopes: resistant (plastic with bubble wrap or hardback), recommendable of size A4 and categorically no less so they can be easily spotted and large enough to glue a label with the receiver’s details. The paper envelopes are much more easily shred and the content can be damaged or lost. Use large hardback or bubble wrap envelopes. Protect the internal documents through a sealed plastic foil to prevent possible damage or dampening.
According to the current legislation, you cannot send through post or international couriers the personal identification documents (passport, identity card, birth certificate). The sender undertakes full responsibility and in case of deterioration, loss or confiscation by the authorities, the courier service is exonerated of any responsibility and no compensation will be given, regardless of the insurance cover the client has chosen and paid.

STANDARD PARCELS
Standard parcels have certain compulsory weight and size characteristics. Exceeding these characteristics leads to the use of a different superior service that can handle this kind of consignments, either XXL, or CARGO.
For the consignments where the pick-up (of the sender) or the delivery address (of the receiver) is outside London (MAINLAND OUTSIDE M25, SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS, NORTHERN IRELAND, CHANNEL ISLANDS), if not mentioned differently, the standard parcels must be cardboard boxes with sides no more than 80 cm each (length, width or height) and their volume (length + width + height) must not exceed 180 cm. The maximum weight allowed is 30 kg.
Please check the packaging or content restrictions from the specific pages of our website:
http://www.eastlines.ro/ambalare/ or http://www.eastlines.ro/restrictii/
For the consignments picked-up from London we accept as standard other types of parcels, like hand bags, shoulder bags, suitcases, raffia bags, parcels wrapped in foil, etc., but only if they’re well sealed, observe the protection and packaging restrictions for fragile content and are well labelled. Mainly there are no packaging, dimension or weight restrictions and all consignments can be sent through the STANDARD service. The maximum weight allowed per parcel is 150kg and each side can go up to a maximum of 350 cm.
Penalties of £50/parcel can occur if a parcel that exceeds there characteristic dimensions or weight is declared as standard so it can be charged as standard. The penalties will be applied after the pick-up of the parcel and will be paid by the receiver upon delivery.
