Over maximum limits

What is it? 
For items and pallets that exceed standard sizes, an Extra Large Supplement will be applied, using indicators that offer the utmost clarity regarding costs.

When is it applied?
The surcharge is applied for each of the pickup and delivery phases for this kind of shipment, for activities other than those usually performed. Alternatively you may decide to bring your shipment directly to one of our branches or to collect a parcel from the destination branch, paying the surcharge only for the part entrusted to SDA, or not to pay it at all if you deal with both transport phases.

What shipments does it apply to?

All SDA services, for items or pallets exceeding the weight and/or sizes given below.
Max weight for single item: 70 kg.
Max size for single item: 450 cm as sum of the three dimensions, of which two values not exceeding 280 cm and 170 cm respectively.
Max weight for pallet: 500 kg
Max size for pallet: base cm 120 x 100, height (including base) cm 170.

For each item or pallet exceeding the weight and/or size an Extra Large Surcharge will be applied, as per the tables below.

Beyond the 3rd band a special service will be performed, subject to a specific job quote.


For your knowledge.
• When a single parcel exceeds both weight and size limits, if these excesses fall in the same band a single surcharge is applied. If however the excess values fall in different bands only the surcharge corresponding to the higher band will be applied.
• For multi-item shipments, in which more than one item exceeds the standard weight and/or size the entire amount of the extra large surcharge for the heaviest and/or bulkiest item will be applied, while for subsequent items 50% of the surcharge corresponding to the excess band will be applied.
