What are the maximum allowed dimensions for a parcel with a destination in the Netherlands?
For an XL surcharge of €3,-, the parcel may have maximum dimensions of 175x78x58 cm. This option is called ‘XL parcel’ and you can select this option under ‘Shipping options’ when creating a new shipment. If the parcel exceeds the maximum allowed dimensions and you sent it as a parcel shipment, you run the risk of having to pay a surcharge of €70 because PostNL will have to transfer the shipment to the freight network. A larger shipment can be sent as a pallet shipment, or you can contact us to find out the options for sending it as a general cargo shipment.
