Address

In buildings with several households, mailboxes are often labelled with the door number only. In order for us to deliver your items correctly, it is paramount that you provide the complete address.

 Addressee First name and last name or company name (and name of the contact person)
 Delivery point Street address (or the locality name) and street number. If several families live in the building, also provide the block and/or staircase number and the door number.
Postcode and city/town of destination  See our Postcode list.


Please align the recipients' address left and make sure it includes the following information from top to bottom in the following order: addressee, delivery point, postcode and city/town of destination.

Bundling

Newspapers are to be sorted by postcode and locality bundles, distribution route, distribution area and distribution zone bundles. Please tie bundles crosswise to ensure that they withstand all stress during delivery. Several bundles can be placed in one pallet.

The following limits apply to bundling:

Height: Minimum 2 cm
Maximum 23. 5 cm
Weight: Maximum 10 kg
Items per bundle: Minimum of 10 units (except in the case of heavy items)

All bundles need to have a correctly completed bundle label containing the following information:

Posting

Authorized Plus.Publications may be posted at contractually agreed posting locations at our specified business hours only.

All items must have a personal address and must be ready for delivery at the time of posting. In addition, please provide a sample copy of the newspaper including all inserts and supplements as well as a correctly completed posting list.

 

Inserts

There is no additional charge for inserts. The total weight will determine the rate charged for your publication.

Third-party supplements

These include all inserts added to magazines on behalf of third parties against payment.

Several inserts by one client are considered to be one insert, as long as they are placed in a sealed envelope of tightly bound together.

The following items are considered third-party inserts:

  • Full or partial advertising wrap (full or half wrap of newspaper without being an integral part of the newspaper)
  • Advertising cover for advertising purposes only placed before the actual editorial front page
  • Tip-On cards on the newspaper in the (full or partial) interest of a third party

If the title and issue number of the magazine are indicated on the first page and if continuous numbering is used, partial or full wraps will be considered to be part of the newspaper and not third-party inserts.

An additional weight-specific charge per unit applies to third-party supplements (see rates for third-party supplements).

Excess weight supplements:

As a general rule, the total weight of all supplements to newspapers (including inserts) may not exceed the newspaper's own weight. However, if this weight is exceeded, such supplements will be handled like supplements with excessive weight.

The maximum weight for such supplements is1,500 grams. The maximum weight for the entire unit (newspaper including packaging and all inserts and supplement) remains at 2,000 grams. An additional weight-specific fee as defined in our price list for newspaper delivery in its updated version applies to all excess weight supplements.
