What are the weight and size limits for shipping using UPS?

UPS has established specific weight and size limits for the packages that you send with all UPS services. The restrictions below only pertain to individual packages. There are no limits to the total weight of your shipment or the total number of packages in your shipment. Shipments larger than the limits listed below will require the use of our UPS Freight services.

  • Packages can be up to 150 lbs (70 kg).
  • Packages can be up to 165 inches (419 cm) in length and girth combined.
  • Packages can be up to 108 inches (270 cm) in length.
  • Packages with a large size-to-weight ratio require special pricing and dimensional weight calculations.

Note: Packages that exceed UPS weight and size limits are subject to an Over Maximum Limits charge.

The limits listed above apply to most packages and destinations, but there are some variances because of different local restrictions in some countries.
