Maximum and minimum dimensions

  • Maximum weight: 35 kg per package
  • Maximum dimensions: 120 x 60 x 60 cm
  • Minimum: 23 x 13 x 1 cm

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

In principle, Dangerous goods cannot be sent as Express next day. The exception is Biological material, UN3373, category B. The maximum quantities per parcel are 4 litres/kg in total, maximum per inner container is 1 litre/kg. Each parcel shall be marked as follows:
 

Label showing biological substance UN3373

The Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) has created a useful and simplified guide on biological material in Norwegian, including detailed requirements for packaging and labelling for UN3373, category B. It can be found here. Due to the regulations of the different commercial airlines in Norway, we can no longer offer delivery of parcels containing dry ice for this service. This ban also applies if dry ice is intended to be used as a refrigerant for biological material UN3373.

Labelling

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

EDI

Can be used. EDI requires a simple computer program for labelling as well as the generation and transmission of shipment information.

Price

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

Svalbard surcharge

A fixed price surcharge per parcel 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
