How It Works...

When booking our TG Express Direct 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 DPD 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.

If you choose TG Courier collection:

  • Please print off your Shipping Label and securely attach it to your parcel.
  • If applicable, we will generate your Packing List/Customs Invoice once your parcel reaches our warehouse.

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 any of your documents, please get in touch and we will be happy to post hard copies to you.

Volumetric Weight

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

For this service, we calculate volumetric weight by multiplying the three dimensions of your parcel together and dividing by 5000.

Actual Weight Dimensions Divisor Volumetric Weight Chargeable Weight
10kg 50 x 30 x 20cm 5000 6kg 10kg
10kg 50 x 60 x 40cm 5000 24kg 24kg
