The freight quote calculator lets you check the cost of a shipment, return, or transfer.

When you create a quote for a shipment within Australia you can use that quote to create a new shipment. The information you’ve already entered will be carried across to your new shipment.

Access to the freight quote tool can be removed for specific user accounts on request. Contact the Parcel Send support team for assistance.
