Chronopost standard and express parcel services

Chronopost offers a basic standard parcel service within Europe to provide cheap shipping alternatives to their clients. Chronopost standard parcels can weight up to 30 kg. If you want to ship heavier parcels you will have to contact the company or book the delivery with us.

  • For the Chrono Standard services, packages should weight equal to or less than 20 kg. At the same time, the sum of the length + 2 heights + 2 widths must not exceed 300 cm, and the length must not exceed 150 cm.
  • As for the Chrono Relais services, the sum of the length + 2x height + 2x width must not exceed 250 cm, and the length must not exceed 100 cm. Parcels that exceed these specifications will have, as a result, an “Outsized” additional cost added. Keep in mind that non-standard packages are not eligible for the Chrono Relais Service.

Chronopost pick-up/drop-off points: what are they and how do they work?

Chronopost local depots and pick-up points are shops or businesses where customers can ship or retrieve their parcels. Whenever shipping with Chronopost you can choose to send the package to a pick-up point. Furthermore, Chronopost pick-up points allow customers to receive packages and not give a personal address. However, if you decide to ship or send a package from a Chronopost pick-up or drop-off location, you will have to do so during their working hours. On the good side, some of these locations may even work during weekends giving more freedom to senders and receivers who cannot collect or drop off parcels during normal working days.

Currently, there are about 18,500 Chronopost local depots and pick-up points available through metropolitan France. Furthermore, there are 70 Chronopost local depots across Europe and 6 Chronopost storage facilities in French overseas territories. You can locate the closest pick-up point on the company’s webpage.
