Checking the Size and Weight of a Single Parcel

In consideration of business transportation where multiple parcels are often shipped to the same address, there is no limit on total weight or number of items.

Weight of a Single Parcel

There is no total weight limit for one shipment performed under one shipping label. There is also no limit on the number of parcels being shipped. However, the maximum weight for a single parcel is 70.0 kg. (Weight limits for a single parcel may differ in some countries and regions.)

Size of Single Parcel

The size of a single parcel is limited to a maximum of 270 cm for the longest side. Furthermore, the total of the longest side and the circumference must be within 330 cm.

Method for Measuring Weight

Based on IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations, weight calculation uses the larger of either the actual weight or volume weight for the parcel.
Actual weight: Actual weight of parcel including packaging
Volume weight: Weight calculated by using 1 kg for every 5,000 cm3 of parcel volume

(Volume weight)=L(cm) x W(cm) x H(cm)/5,000

(Example) Parcel box with actual weight of 5 kg and dimensions of 30 cm × 40 cm × 50 cm = 12 (kg). In this case, volume weight (12 kg) is greater than actual weight (5 kg). Therefore, 12 kg is used when calculating fees.

Notes for Using Our Services

  1. Generally speaking, the contents of parcels should be packed using buffering materials with a thickness of 5 to 6 cm.
    In particular, use double-layer packaging for glass and fragile items.
    If it is judged that packaging was insufficient, compensation may not be possible even when ad valorem fees have been added.
  2. When ad valorem fees are not paid, the maximum compensation amount for loss or damage will be 11,000* JPY.**
  3. We take no responsibility for indirect or consequential loss or damage arising from negligence or other failure to fulfill duties.
    However, this excludes cases in which other regulations are defined by law. (Compensation does not include lost profit or costs such as signal codes which arise due to loss or damage.)
  4. All negotiation and compensation for freight-related accidents shall be conducted with the consigner.
  • *English terms and conditions state a limit of US $100. This shall be converted to 11,000 JPY.
  • **Contact the UPS Japan Customer Service Center (0120-74-2877, English or Japanese only) for further details.

Notes for Sending Notebook Computers/Mobile Phones:
From January 2009, in order to ensure safe air transport, restrictions on handling for international air transport have become stricter when performing overseas shipping of notebook computers, mobile phones and other devices containing lithium batteries.
Individual transportation contracts are required between the sender and Yamato. Therefore, we have stopped consignment of such items.
