Descriptions of extra charges

Examples of extra shipping charges with approximate costs

To get an accurate quote on our website, please make sure that all of the quoting information that you put in is 100% correct. Changes in pick up/delivery locations, location types, description of goods, number of packages, dimensions, weight, class, and stackability of the shipment (whether your packages can be stacked on top of each other) will affect your quote.

If the actual shipping information differs from the information used while quoting, your bill will be adjusted accordingly.

Not selecting all the special handling services you need, and not having the proper documentation (BOLs for all shipments & customs documents for cross-border shipments) will also impact your final bill.

Here are some of the extra charges that may appear on your invoice, with detailed explanations and approximate costs. Note that these are just examples, and the charges may vary.
