Express Pallet is a unique, weather-resistant, safe, secure and affordable door-to-door packaging solution for heavier shipments, worldwide through a single partner, DHL, with proven customs expertise.
Express Pallet can be 'built' to accommodate shipments ranging from 50kgs to 100kgs.

|100||790 mm||790 mm||810 mm|
The Express Pallet is also very economical. A 50 kg shipment to USA, for example, would cost Rs 15,250, a 75 kg shipment would cost Rs 21,000 while a 100 kg would cost shipment Rs 28,000 (all exclusive of applicable fuel surcharge and service tax), with savings of 38%, 39% and 37% respectively on normal Express rates.
