For parcels heavier than 30kg or larger than 175x78x58cm, MyParcel offers you the option to send pallet shipments. Parcels that are heavier than 50kg also need to be sent on a pallet. Below are the most important factors you need to consider when shipping pallets:

  • Check that the pallet is in a good condition.
  • Place heavy boxes at the bottom and stack the lighter boxes on top.
  • Stack the boxes so that they form one unit.
  • Make sure that no products are sticking out of the pallet.
  • Seal the pallet for extra stability during transport.
  • If necessary, reinforce the corners with cardboard corner protectors.
