How It Works...

When booking our TG eComm service, you have the option of dropping your consignment off at one of our warehouses or using one of our collection services. Once your shipment has been delivered to our warehouse, we will process it and forward your parcel to its final destination via our carriers.

If you are dropping your parcel off:

If you are dropping your parcel off at our warehouse:

  • We will generate your shipping documentation, which will be available for you to download from your ‘My Account’ area after you have made your booking.
  • You will need to print your Shipping Label, and Packing List/Customs Invoice if applicable, and ensure this is securely attached to your parcel.
  • For all parcels sent to destinations outside of the European Union, our carriers require a Packing List/Customs Invoice detailing the size, weight, contents and value of your goods for customs purposes. 
  • If you are not able to print your documents, please get in touch and we can send them to you.

If you are sending to our warehouse using your own carrier, please put 'Transglobal Express (Your TP- order reference number)' at the top of the depot address.


If your consignment is being collected:

If you are unable to drop off your shipment at our warehouse, you can choose one of our collection services. These will deliver your consignment to our warehouse, before it is sent on to its final destination.

If you choose TNT collection:

  • Once your booking is complete, we will generate your TNT documents. These are made available for you to download from your 'My Account' area.
  • You will need to print and securely attach the TNT Shipping Label to your parcel and give the TNT Collection Manifest and Consignment Notes to the driver.
  • We will re-label your consignment for the outbound journey once it reaches our warehouse. We will attach the new Shipping Label, as well as the Packing List/Customs Invoice if applicable.

If you choose TG Parcel collection:

  • Please print off two copies of your Shipping Label as the driver may require a spare. Securely attach one to your parcel.
  • We will re-label your consignment for the outbound journey once it reaches our warehouse. We will attach the new Shipping Label, as well as the Packing List/Customs Invoice if applicable.

For all parcels sent to destinations outside of the European Union, our carriers require a Packing List/Customs Invoice detailing the size, weight, contents and value of your goods for customs purposes.

If you have your own Packing List/Customs Invoice that you wish to use, please email it to sales@transglobalexpress.co.uk, with 'Alternative Invoice' and your TP- reference number in the subject field.

If you are not able to print any of your documents, please get in touch and we will be happy to post hard copies to you.

Size and Weight Restrictions

Restrictions may vary depending on the destination of your shipment. The following information is provided as a general guide:

  • Maximum dimensions per item: 150cm (length, width or height)
  • Maximum size: 300cm girth*
  • Maximum weight for parcels: 5 kg
  • Maximum diameter for rolls: 40cm

*Girth is calculated as follows: (sum of two smallest dimensions X 2) + longest dimension.

For example: for a parcel of dimensions 20 x 30 x 40cm:

(20 + 30) x 2 + 40  = 140cm

Volumetric Weight

Your shipment will be charged by either actual weight or volumetric weight – whichever is greater.

Volumetric weight is a value derived from the size rather than the weight of your parcel and may apply if your parcel is particularly large and contains relatively light items.

TG eComm calculates volumetric weight by multiplying the three dimensions of your parcel together and dividing by 6000.

For example:

Service Parcel Weight Actual Weight Dimensions Divisor Volumetric Weight Chargeable Weight
DHL Express Worldwide Import 10kg 10kg 50 x 30 x 20cm 6000 5kg 10kg
DHL Express Worldwide Import 10kg 10kg 50 x 60 x 40cm 6000 20kg 20kg

 

Surcharges

There are currently no surcharges for this service.

Consignments that exceed size and weight restrictions will not be shipped from our warehouse.

Prohibited Items

  • Our list of hazardous, prohibited and owner’s risk items is available here.
  • For up-to-date information specific to the carrier, please check their prohibited items page. Please note that prohibited items are subject to vary depending on your delivery destination.
  • If you’d like advice on whether or not your items are prohibited, please contact our Customer Services team via Live Chat, email or telephone (0345 145 1212 8:00am-6:30pm Mon-Fri, 9:00am-1:00pm Sat).
