The rates that PriParcel charges are the same for small or big parcels, because the actions we must perform are the same. The transport costs can be cheaper for small parcels (especially with intercontinental shipments) because volume and weight determine the price there.
The price for my shipment is higher than the price given by the shipping calculator, how is this possible?suzannastrampraat2021-07-14T17:36:16+01:00
In some cases, especially when it concerns shipments with UPS, additional surcharges are added. Surcharges are not included in the shipping calculator but are calculated in the final price. Examples are surcharges for a residential address, for remote locations, for parcels with unusual dimensions (e.g. round boxes / rolls) etc.
This depends on the weight, size and forwarding address, so there is not just one answer. In many cases PostNL is the cheapest carrier, but they are slower when it comes to international shipments. UPS is in most cases the most expensive carrier as they have all kinds of surcharges that drive up the price.
