Packaging
The sender is responsible for ensuring that the contents of a parcel are packed securely. There are often several unloading/sorting tasks along the way, so the packaging must be solid and adapted to 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 covered in plastic, secured by slings or packaged in such a way as to ensure the best possible protection against damage and to remain on the pallet during the entire transportation period.

Hazardous goods

Posten does not have its own processing and transportation line for hazardous goods/contents and therefore cannot carry goods classified as hazardous goods in accordance with the international regulations “ADR - transport of Dangerous Goods by Road” More information on this can be found 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

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

The EDI order must be sent Bring before the relevant shipments are picked up / handed in to Bring / Bring's partner. 

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

Handling surcharge

For packages where one of the sides is over 120cm or two of the sides are over 60 cm, a surcharge for manual handling 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/collection fee. In case of payment default, invoices not yet due are are also considered as due and can be recovered together with overdue claims. Posten is entitled to set off its outstanding accounts against claims that the customer has against Posten. Posten can stop invoicing services with immediate effect if the agreed credit limit is exceeded due to payment default or the customer’s creditworthiness is downgraded 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 demerger, the agreement is terminated if the contracting party is the company transferred. The agreement terminates with immediate effect if a company is reported as dissolved to the Register of Business Enterprises or 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.
Deviations between the customer's valuation on the franking machine and the price calculation carried out by Bring are settled in arrears.
Deviations 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.

Responsibility
