Reference: Parcel Size and Weight Limitations

A quick reminder of each carrier’s size and weight restrictions is found below.  Please bookmark this blog posting for reference should you require a quick reference guide when shipping:


UPS has established specific weight and size limits for the packages that you send with all UPS services. The restrictions below only pertain to individual packages. There are no limits to the total weight of your shipment or the total number of packages in your shipment.

  • Packages that weigh more than 70 lbs (31.5 kg, 25 kg within the EU) require a special heavy-package label
  • Packages with a large size-to-weight ratio require special pricing and dimensional weight calculations

Note: Packages that exceed UPS weight and size limits are subject to an Over Maximum Limits charge.

The limits listed above apply to most packages and destinations, but there are some variances because of different local restrictions in some countries. Please contact UPS for more details.
