Our low transport prices

We try to present our Export prices transparently and understandably.


We refrain from presenting:


  • Inscrutable surcharges
  • A comprehensive set of rules that will take hours to read
  • Complicated calculations
  • Surcharges of any kind
  • Fuel surcharges

 All export prices show you the total price, excluding duties, taxes and expenses in the destination country.


We are also always there for you and will help you personally and not with Q&A pages or a blog.

 Furthermore, after the order has been placed, you will receive a written offer from us with a total price.

 Only customs duties and taxes or other charges in the receiving country will be charged to you in addition, as soon as we have the amounts.

Let's start with the basis of calculation

The chargeable weight is determined as follows:

Length x width x height in cm =....................: Divide this result by 6000.


So far not that difficult, right?


The so-called freight chargeable weight now results from the comparison, this determined sum and the actual weight.


example 1

You send a pallet of table tennis balls with a gross weight of 60 kg.

This has the dimensions 120x80x120 cm. So that's 1,152,000. Now divide this value by 6000.

Makes 192 kg. This is the so-called "volume weight".

Since the volume weight exceeds the actual weight, the volume weight is used for freight calculation.


example 2

You send a pallet of lead plates with a gross weight of 850 kg.

This has the dimensions 80x60x30 cm. So that's 144,000. Now divide this value by 6000.

Makes 24 kg. Here again the "volume weight".

Because the volume weight is smaller than the actual weight, the higher real weight is used.
