    Currency Conversion
    Charges to a payer's account in a foreign currency will be converted to the payer's currency using a weekly exchange rate secured through major money centre banks.

     Back to Top

    Over Maximum Limits
    Packages with an actual weight of more than 150 pounds (70 kg), or that exceed 108 inches (270 cm) in length or a total of 165 inches (419 cm) in length and girth combined, as measured to determine their billable weight, are not accepted for transportation. These packages are subject to an Over Maximum Limits surcharge, in addition to all other applicable charges, if found in the UPS small package system. Packages exceeding 165 inches (419 cm) in length and girth combined are also subject to the Large Package Surcharge.

     Back to Top

    Large Package Surcharge
    A Large Package Surcharge will be applied to each UPS package when its length plus girth [(2 x width) + (2 x height)] combined exceeds 330cm, but does not exceed the maximum UPS size of 419cm.

    Large Packages are subject to a minimum billable weight of 40kgs in addition to the Large Package Surcharge.

    An Additional Handling charge will not be assessed when a Large Package Surcharge is applied.

    Special Handling of Undeliverable Shipments
    When UPS has taken measures to try to deliver any Worldwide shipments, but has been unsuccessful, we will process your shipment acting on your instructions. The transportation cost and a surcharge will be charged to the shipper for the processing of each such undeliverable shipment. Please see the Additional Charges table for pricing information.

    For all shipments within the EU and within your country, we will automatically return your shipment by UPS Standard service (where available). Transportation and fuel charges will apply for the return.

     Back to Top

    Signature Required
    Normally, UPS requires the signature of the receiver for all deliveries. As an exception, deliveries in certain countries are allowed on "Driver release" (delivery in a location in the receiver's premises without the need for a signature) or on "Letter box release". Letter box release is a secured release by a service provider which will allow residential packages to be left in a safe letter box without a signature.

    Use Signature Required to prevent the use of "Driver Release" or "Letter Box Release" in applicable countries.

     Back to Top

    Adult Signature Required
    Use "Adult Signature Required" to prevent minors from accepting deliveries of goods for legal or other reasons. This may apply to alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, but also to goods that you prefer an adult to receive.

     Back to Top

    Weekly Service Charge
    Without special arrangement for collection, a UPS driver will visit you once a day to collect any shipments. A weekly service charge will apply. Please see the table for pricing information.

     Back to Top

    Address Correction
    If a mistake has been made in the address, we will make every reasonable effort to find the correct address and deliver the shipment if it is within the same destination country. An additional charge for this service will be billed to the shipper. You can view the address correction charges in the Additional Charges table.  

     Back to Top

    Receiver or Third Party Refuses to Pay
    If the receiver or a third party is selected to pay the transportation charges and the bill-to account is incorrect or missing, UPS searches its records for the correct account number. Whether or not the account number is found, a processing fee per shipment is billed back to the shipper.

     Back to Top

    Extended Area and Remote Area Surcharges
    Extended Area Surcharge
    UPS provides a collection or delivery service in extended, as well as urban, areas. An additional charge applies for each shipment that is collected or delivered in an extended area.

    Remote Area Surcharge
    This surcharge is applied for delivery to or collection from an area beyond UPS extended areas, which are less accessible for collections and deliveries (domestic and international services).

    Additional Handling Charge
    Additional Handling applies to the following:

    • Any article that is encased in an outside shipping container made of metal or wood
    • Any cylindrical item, such as a barrel, drum, pail, or tire, that is not fully encased in a corrugated cardboard shipping container
    • Any package with the longest side exceeding 60 inches (150 cm) or its second-longest side exceeding 30 inches (76 cm)
    • Any package with an actual weight greater than 70 pounds (32 kg)
    • Each package in a shipment where the average weight per package is greater than 70 pounds (32 kg) and the weight for each package is not specified on the source document or the UPS automated shipping system used

    UPS also reserves the right to assess the Additional Handling Charge for any package that, in UPS's sole discretion, requires special handling.

    In consideration of the additional handling required on our part, and subsequent potential delays in processing these shipments, UPS does not provide a money-back guarantee for them. UPS does, therefore, not refund the shipping charges if shipments requiring additional handling are not delivered by the time normally scheduled for such shipment.

    Residential Delivery Service
    UPS provides delivery services to residential addresses as well as business addresses. A residential delivery is made to a home, including a business operating out of a home, whereby the property or location is also used for private accommodation.

    For each residential delivery, an additional charge per shipment applies. You can calculate residential delivery service charges using the Additional Charges table.

    Oversize Pallet Charge
    Depending on origin and destination, this surcharge may apply to certain UPS Worldwide Express Freight shipments. To determine if a particular origin or destination has an oversize pallet limit, please visit www.ups.com/worldwideexpressfreight.

     Back to Top

    Residential Delivery Service
    UPS provides delivery service to residential addresses as well as business addresses. A residential delivery is one made to a home, including a business operating out of a home, which does not have an entrance that is open to the public.

    Brokerage Services
    UPS Brokerage services are provided at no extra cost for routine customs clearance. Our aim is always to provide the one-step, seamless process and quick customs clearance that is crucial to on-time delivery. Clearance preparation begins while your shipment is still in transit because of the advance notice feature on the UPS network. Government regulations require specific documentation for international shipments, and UPS provides expert services for the preparation of complete and accurate export documentation. We offer optional customs services to help you prevent unpredicted delays to your shipment. Some of these services are subject to additional charges. Please see these charges in the Additional Charges table.

    Additional charges that may apply for customs clearance procedures include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Clearance procedures involving a government agency other than customs
    • Transit procedure
    • Storage
    • Customs inspection
    • Border inspection post charges
    • Shipments cleared by a third party

    For full details, contact your UPS representative. All supplements and additional charges are exclusive of tax.

     Back to Top

    UPS customs brokers are experienced with complex commercial shipments. Electronic transmissions of shipment data helps speed customs clearance. UPS may prepay duties, taxes and other government charges on behalf of the payer. Disbursement charges are noted in the Additional Charges Table.

    All additional charges are exclusive of taxes.

    Late Payment Fee
    UPS will send you an invoice for the services provided. In the event that payment of an invoice is overdue, UPS may charge a late payment fee. The relevant amount will appear on your next UPS bill. This fee is in addition to any interest charges and legal rights and remedies available to UPS.

     Back to Top

    Missing or Invalid Account Number Fee
    An account number is invalid if it is not the correct account number for the bill-to party, or if it is the account number for a consignee or third party who fails to pay the shipping charges.

    • A charge per shipment will be assessed for domestic (if available) and international shipments with a missing or invalid payer account number. Additionally, if the consignee or third party fails to pay the shipping charges, the original shipper will be billed a refusal fee plus the shipping charges.

     Back to Top

    Duty and Tax Forwarding Charge
    This charge is for shipments outside the EU, when the payer of duties and taxes is not located in the destination country. It is billed to the party who pays the transportation charges.

     Back to Top

    UPS carbon neutral
    UPS carbon neutral is an option for shippers who are conscious about their climate impact and are doing something positive about it. Using UPS carbon neutral lets you demonstrate your commitment to climate change, and enables you and your package recipients to share in that commitment. When you select UPS carbon neutral, a flat fee will be added to your bill for each package selected.

     Back to Top

    Always Contact on Customer Request
    When implemented, UPS will always contact the importer for clearance instruction. Should UPS be unable to contact the importer, a written advice letter will be issued. If no response is received within 10 days, the shipment will be returned to the sender. If a shipment is non-excisable and does not require any other customs documentation, the importer can pre-advise UPS so that this process is not followed.
