How Tiptrans calculate Storage price?

The basic rule

  • every package can stay 30 days free of charge if your box was not full at the moment of receipt of the shipment

Storage is charged if

  • new package arrives in your already-full box
  • your package exceeds free storage period

Storage fees

  • the storage fee is based on your plan; please check our actual price list. You can also calculate the fee here.
  • storage is charged proportionally, you will pay less for a small package and more for a bigger package
  • there is a minimum charge $2 per package (Standard account) or $1 (Premium account) - no minimum for Business Premium


Let's say you have a Standard account, so your Tiptrans box has a total volume 0.13CBM and additional storage cost $50/1CBM.

1) Your first package will be sized 0.20CBM. We will not charge any fee at the moment of receipt of the shipment, the package can stay 30 days free of charge, even it's oversized

2) You already have several packages, so your box is occupied and only 0.03CMB left. There is a new package coming, 0.1CBM. We will add this package to the account and we will not charge any storage fee, as your space was still not overfilled at the moment when the package arrived.

3) Your box is full already and you will get a new package, sized 0.05CBM. We will charge a storage fee $2.5 immediately.

4) Your package storage time exceed 30 days (package is 20x20x10cm = 0.04CBM). We will charge $2 the very next day, and the storage period will be extended by 30 days.
