Monday, April 13, 2009

PPS Heavyweight was introduced in November 2008, providing a per piece weight limit increase from 32 to 46 kilograms (70 to 100 pounds) for service within the United States including San Juan, Puerto Rico. The expanded weight limit between the United States and Europe is the latest enhancement to the popular shipping product utilized by professional shippers and couriers.
