UPS has special guidelines and procedures to ensure that your heavy packages weighing over 70 lb (31.5 kg) arrive safely at their destination.
For your packages weighing over 25 kg, it is very important to evaluate your packaging materials and to make sure that they are adequate for heavier package contents. Use the following guidelines to pack your heavy package safely and securely.
UPS requires that you attach a heavy-package sticker to all your packages weighing more than 25 kg.
Apply the bright yellow UPS heavy-package sticker to your package to the right of the address label for maximum visibility and write the weight of your package in the white area on the label.
When you use these highly-visible heavy-package stickers, it allows UPS to give your heavy packages the special attention and handling that they need and deserve. The stickers alert our employees, as well as your customers, that special care should be taken to handle these packages safely.
