Amazon Partnered Carrier Programme (PCP): Provide Details

Packing messages

The box may incur a large package surcharge

If the package length plus twice the width plus twice the height exceeds 330 cm (130 inches), UPS applies a "Large Package Surcharge."

Example: For a box measuring 91 cm x 71 cm x 71 cm, the length (91 cm) plus twice the width (2 x 71 cm) and twice the height (2 x 71 cm) equals 375 cm. UPS will accept the box, but they may apply a "Large Package Surcharge" because it is greater than 330 cm.

The box exceeds the maximum size allowed by the carrier and must be repackaged

A UPS package length cannot exceed 270 cm (108 inches). The package length combined with twice the width plus twice the height cannot exceed 419 cm (165 inches). If possible, repack the contents in multiple boxes. If not, consider using a different carrier.

Example: A box measuring 90 cm x 85 cm x 85 cm exceeds the maximum dimensions. The length (90 cm) plus twice the width (2 x 85 cm) and twice the height (2 x 85 cm) equals 430 cm.

Pallets messages

Non-stackable pallets shipped to a warehouse in the United Kingdom must not exceed 120 cm x 100 cm x 180 cm (L x W x H). Non-stackable pallets shipped to a warehouse outside of the United Kingdom must not exceed 120 cm x 80 cm x 180 cm (L x W x H). Each individual pallet must not exceed 500 kg.

For the Partnered Carrier Programme (PCP), we do not accept stackable pallets. If you stack pallets for your shipment, it will be rejected by the carrier.

If your pallet is over 500 kg, over 180 cm in height, is unstable, and requires restacking or overhangs, you may be liable for additional handling and delivery surcharges.
