Packaging

The sender is responsible for ensuring that the contents of a parcel are securely packed. There are often several unloading/sorting tasks along the way, so the packaging must be solid and adapted for the goods to be shipped. Fragile items must be surrounded by impact-absorbing material to absorb pressure and impact while protecting the contents. Goods placed on pallets must be wrapped, strapped, secured by slings or packaged in a way that provides optimum protection against damage and ensures that the goods stay together on the pallet during transport.

Dangerous goods

Posten does not have a separate handling and transport facility for dangerous goods/contents and therefore cannot carry goods classified as dangerous goods in accordance with the international regulations “ADR - road transport of dangerous goods”. More information on this can be obtained at posten.no/bring.no or via Posten's customer service phone number 04045.

Labelling

Approved and correctly completed transport labels/address cards must be used. If an unapproved address label is used the shipment can be rejected.

EDI

EDI must be used.

Price

The price is according to the current price list unless otherwise agreed. See prices here.

Handling surcharge

For parcels where one of the sides measures more than 120 cm or two of the sides are over 60 cm, a handling surcharge will apply. The same applies to parcels below the minimum size, cylindrical parcels and parcels without packaging. See the current price list.

Svalbard surcharge

A fixed price surcharge applies to parcels to Svalbard. See price list.

Form of payment/invoice

Credit requirements and payment terms are clarified with the Credit Department. The Credit Department informs the customer about the credit terms directly via email. All submitted assignments can be invoiced. In case of late payment, delayed payment interest will accrue in accordance with the Norwegian Act concerning interest on overdue payments. Posten charges a standard reminder fee. In the event of payment default, non-defaulted invoices will also be calcultated as defaulted and can be collected together with overdue claims. Posten retains the right to offset its outstanding accounts against the customer´s claims against Posten.

Posten can stop invoicing services with immediate effect if the agreed credit limit is exceeded due to payment default or a downgraded creditworthiness by the credit information agency. In cases where creditworthiness is downgraded, the customer may be offered a new credit agreement against security. The item determines the amount of the security. Claims must be made within the due date. Only the claimed part of an invoice can be withheld during the claim processing. In the event of a merger, the agreement is terminated if the contracting party is the company that is being acquired. The agreement terminates with immediate effect if a company is reported as dissolved to the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises or when bankruptcy proceedings are initiated.

Form of payment/parcels via franking machine

Parcels and optional services are prepaid by recharging the postage machine with the desired amount. Discrepancies between the customer's valuation on the franking machine and the price calculation carried out by Bring are settled in arrears. Discrepancies are accumulated and invoiced to the customer at least once every three months, according to current procedures, cf. the item “Invoice” - text in italics. If the customer has paid too much, the excess amount will be credited at least once every three months. Amounts under NOK 100 over a three-month period are not credited to the customer.

Cash

Payable in cash at post in store/post office or purchased at bring.no

Time guarantee

No

Liability

Parcels and goods shipped with Posten Norge AS under the Bring brand are regulated by the Norwegian Road Transport Act.
