For the sender

How do I pack my parcel to avoid damages?

The sender is responsible for properly packaging the parcel so it wont be broken in transit. The parcels are partially handled by machines and collected in cages during transit. The sender needs to make sure that the item is packed in such a way that the content or other parcels are damaged by the package. 
Use as enough packing material so that the item is immovable in the package. A recommendation is that the package should be able to handle a fall from a table.

Notes or text with fragile/glassware or similar wont give any extra protection since the parcels are handled by machines. 

How do I get the shipping label?

Once the shipping is booked you can download your label as a PDF file. You also get it as a PDF file via e-mail. Print the label and attach it to the parcel. From most vendors you can get a plastic folder for the label.

How can I get the shipping label without a printer?

All of Postnords vendors can print the shipping label, you only need to bring the barcode you received when you booked the freight.

What happens if the parcel weighs more than I paid for?

If the parcel weighs more than you booked you will be charged the difference when handing in the parcel to the vendor.

Can I hand in the parcel at another vendor than the one I specified?
