Packaging And Transport
There are no duplicate charges when we are unable to deliver all cultures in one shipment
Packaging, invoicing and bank charges
To cover our expenses for packaging invoicing and bank charges, we charge the following:
- Risk group 1 (Exempt biological specimen)
SEK 260 (Sweden) or SEK 400 (abroad) per order (maximum 15 ampoules = one letter).
- Risk group 2, UN 3373, (biological substance category B). Within Sweden SEK 440, abroad SEK 600 per shipment (one package up to 40 ampoules)
- Risk group 3, (Dangerous goods), UN 2814 (infectious substance infecting humans). Within Sweden SEK 440, abroad SEK 600 per shipment.
Abroad we must send the strains with a courier company. If a courier company, FedEx, DHL or World Courier is used for the shipment there will be additional costs.
UN 2814 can only be shipped if you find a courier company that accepts shipment to the country where you are located. This service is often very expensive, due to the risk.
SCHENKER may be used for risk group 3, UN 2814, in Sweden.
If you have an account with any of these companies you can provide us with the account number and we will use that.
The CCUG must comply with prevailing regulations and will determine what is the most appropriate and inexpensive shipping mode.
