  • Transport insurance,

  • The (regular) pick-up / drop-off at parcel shops,

  • national shipping.

You will be billed directly by Cargo International for your shipping labels. You will only receive a monthly invoice from shipcloud for the use of our service (basic and transaction fees) and for the shipping labels created at shipcloud's business rates with other carriers.

Important information about pickup and packaging

When the shipping label is created, we automatically book a pickup of your shipment for the following business day between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.

Good to know: You can also view the pickup day as well as the time period after creating the shipping label in the "Shipments" menu item in the shipcloud WebUI.

Please make sure that your shipments are sufficiently and properly packed at the time of pickup. Helpful packing tips (german language) can also be found directly on the Cargo International website:
