Landmark Global

General Information

Landmark Global is a tracked mail service for parcels up to 30kg. You can book a collection from your door or drop your consignment off at our London depot.

With Landmark Global, longer transit times are offset by lower costs, making it ideal for non-urgent shipments. It's trackable all the way.

We offer three different options for Landmark Global depending on your customs arrangements, all of which will be shown as separate services in your quote. You will need to select the relevant service at the quote stage.

How It Works...

With our Landmark Global service, parcels are shipped from our depot. You have the option of dropping your consignment off at our London depot, using one of our collection services, or choosing one of hundreds of DPD or UPS drop-off locations nationwide.

Please add 1 working day to your estimated transit time if booking either an optional collection or an alternative drop-off option, to allow for overnight delivery to our depot. For some postcodes in London, we are able to collect ourselves and ship from the depot same day.

Once your shipment has been delivered to our depot, we will process it and forward your parcel to its final destination via Landmark.

Please refer to our documentation page for labelling instructions for each collection/drop-off option.

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.

*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.

Landmark Global 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
Landmark Global 10kg 10kg 50 x 30 x 20cm 6000 5kg 10kg
Landmark Global 10kg 10kg 50 x 60 x 40cm 6000 20kg 20kg

 

Surcharges

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