Weight and dimensions
Geodis shipments may consist of one or more colli.
If a colli weighs under 20 kg, it's important that it can be handled by only one person.
If a colli weighs over 20 kg, then you're required to place it on a pallet. Pallet exchange is not possible in this case and you can't get it back as Geodis uses it throughout the entire delivery.
It's important that your shipment complies with the maximum dimensions and weight.
The shipping price depends on the pick up- and delivery- address, together with shipment's physical and volumetric weight. It's therefore important that you fill in the correct weight and measurements, when booking a shipment with Geodis.
Volumetric weight of a shipment (also called dimensional weight) is a calculation which reflects the density of a parcel. The volumetric weight is being calculated and compared to the actual weight of the shipment for each colli. The highest weight is used to calculate the cost of the shipment.
Geodis' volumetric weight of is calculated as follows:
Volumetric weight (kg) = length (m) x width (m) x height (m) x 200
Volumetric weight (kg) = length (m) x width (m) x height (m) x 250
Prohibited and restricted contents
Geodis' shipments must not contain valuable jewelry and watches, securities, irreplaceable items, pornography, pirated goods, animals, illegal furs, plants, human remains or ashes, weapons, ammunition, drugs, liquids, hazardous goods (under IATA and ADR rules). Additional restrictions may occur and are not limited to the laws of some countries.
It's your responsibility as a sender to ensure that the contents of your shipment are acceptable and don't violate any laws of either sender or receiver country.
If you're unsure whether your goods can be transported or if there are any restrictions content-wise, please contact our customer service.
It's your responsibility as a sender to provide adequate and secure packaging, which can be loaded with other goods and withstand road transport in tarpaulin trucks. Secure packaging allows for stacking, helps to withstand shocks, pressure and vibrations/shaking during transportation and storage. Pallets and cargo must be able to withstand handling by truck. Proper robust packaging prevents the package from causing damage to other shipments, Geodis or third parties.
