Items over 30kg in weight are NO LONGER ACCEPTED through the APC Network.

parcel over 30kg

Items between 25kg-30kg in weight must be labelled with 2 x heavy items labels.

Single items over 25kg will need to be labelled as a ‘Heavy Item’. Labels will be provided. Two heavy item labels should be applied to any parcel which weighs in excess of 25kg.  One label must be applied adjacent to the barcoded routing label and the other clearly visible on one of the other sides.  This is essential in order that the requirement for a two man lift is easily identified and the increased risk effectively managed.

Maximum length for any single item is 200cm.  Please refer to chart below.
