What is mail delivery time?

How is the shipping price calculated?

a) When calculating the service fee for the Maleo parcel addressed to Georgia from Poland, the largest weight between the volumetric and exact weights of the parcel is taken into account and it is multiplied by the rate set by "Georgian Post" LLC for 1 kg.

b) When sending car parts from the USA to Georgia, the shipment handling fee is determined by multiplying the largest weight between the exact scales and the shipment volume by the rate set per 1 kg.

Explanation: The volumetric weight of the shipment is calculated by the following formula: Length of the shipment (cm) X Width (cm) X Height (cm) / 6000.

 

Except for the cases established by clauses a) and b), the calculation of the service fee for the Maleo shipment addressed to Georgia is carried out by multiplying the weight of the shipment by the tariff established by "Georgia Posti" LLC for 1 kg. However, if the weight of the shipment is less than 100 grams, for the purpose of calculating its fee, the weight of such shipment will be considered as 100 grams and the weight of the shipment over 100 grams addressed to Georgia from the USA will be rounded up to 50 grams.
