What are carton sizes by shipping company?

Until the end of 1997, Deutsche Post had a complete shipping monopoly. Every letter, every small package, every parcel could only be transported via this state-owned shipping company. By January 1, 2008, this monopoly was fundamentally reformed, and the entire postal market here was liberalized. Anyone who has something to send today can therefore choose completely freely from a large number of mail order companies operating in this country. The most important providers for the mail order business are:

  • DHL
  • DPD
  • GLS
  • Hermes
  • UPS


As already mentioned at the beginning, each of these shipping companies divides its packages into different classes. These are defined by three core elements:

  • the maximum dimensions of the shipping boxes,
  • the maximum weight per package (class) and
  • the associated shipping costs.

 
The challenge: Each shipping service provider defines its own benchmarks for different reasons. The fact that some of them calculate shipping costs based on a variety of different variables does not make the choice any easier. Here you can distinguish not only by dimensions and weight, but also by delivery location, for example. The cartons by shipping company from packaging warehouse are your key to efficiently adapt to the confusing offer of the mail order companies.

Cartons by shipping service provider: what cardboard box size do I need?

 
For the shipping companies, it has various advantages to set up their own rules for the packages and their classes. This applies, for example, to their margin regarding quantities or the necessary handling and transport space. So that you don't have to familiarize yourself with these often changing specifications again and again, we'll do it for you. On the following pages, you will therefore find all the relevant specifications of the most important transport companies operating in Germany. The tables give you an exact overview regarding dimensions, weight and shipping costs of the respective packages and shipping methods.

Cartons by shipping provider FAQ: Our answers to your most important questions

Question 1: Why do shipping companies only release their prices for business customers upon request?

The main reason for this is that every business customer has different demands. For example, a small store that only ships things occasionally is a less demanding and profitable customer for a shipping company than a large e-commerce company that sometimes orders hundreds of packages every day. The shipping companies calculate individually on the basis of such a shipping volume and can therefore hardly quote blanket prices. However, the private customer prices are a useful orientation possibility.

Question 2: Do the free formats at packaging warehouse also apply to boxes by shipping company?

Yes, because the shipping companies only specify maximum dimensions for their different classes. As long as your box is within the dimensional range of a particular package class without slipping into the next smaller or larger class, you are completely free to determine the dimensions of your shipping package.
 
Question 3: Can I post boxes that I ordered from packaging warehouse specifically for cooperation with a shipping company with another shipping company?

As long as the boxes are within the dimensional and weight specifications of the second shipping company, there is nothing to stop you. Just check out our tables on the different shipping providers and their services..
