Prices and conditions
Get an overview of our services and surcharges on this page. You can see the prices here.
Remember that you select the services via your distribution system when you book your consignment. It is therefore a prerequisite that your provider offers the service on their platform.
Valuables and Insured Items
Parcels containing money, traveler’s checks, credit cards, bearer securities, precious metals including platinum, gold and silver, precious gemstones, jewelry, watches, jewels, pearls, furs, rugs, works of art, gift vouchers or tickets, or other valuable items whose value exceeds DKK 4,800, must be sent using the Insured Items service.
For Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland, this is done by purchasing the Insured Items service, with the consignment then having compensation of up to DKK 30,000 (DKK 26,442 for Greenland).
For other countries, this is done by sending the parcel using the Insured Items service via Online Porto. The maximum compensation for each country is shown on Online Porto. However, you cannot send Insured Items to all countries.

Ad Hoc Pickup
Use Ad Hoc Pickup if you have up to three parcels per day that you want to be picked up from your business address.
Parcels with Climate Compensation
Throughout 2023, PostNord will make a climate contribution on all your MyPack parcels sent with PostNord in Denmark.
The climate contribution goes directly to Danish projects working to improve the climate and protect nature, and that contribute to the overall national CO2 reduction target. The contribution is calculated using the average carbon emissions for a parcel’s journey. For the contribution, a corresponding amount of CO2 will be offset per parcel over the lifetime of the project.
Read more about Parcels with Climate Compensation.
You can also choose to purchase a climate contribution on your other parcel consignments in Denmark and the Nordic region. It costs DKK 0.05 excluding VAT in addition to the parcel price.
You can buy your Parcels with Climate Compensation via your distribution system. If you don’t have access to Parcels with Climate Compensation, contact your provider.
Show your customers that you care about the environment
When you send Parcels with Climate Compensation, a logo will be added to your parcel labels, showing your customers that you care about the environment.
