Product information


Responsible Shipping: This type of non-urgent shipping is more environmentally sustainable because it allows delivery routes to be optimised during transportation, which helps reduce emissions and is also more socially sustainable because it is managed by a public Spanish company operating throughout the country that is committed to stable, quality employment for all its professionals. 

Paq Standard Correos is the ideal choice for your non-urgent shipments, with delivery periods between 48 and 72 hours, depending on the origin and destination:

  • This type of non-urgent shipment enables us to optimise delivery routes by waiting until the vehicle is full, helping to reduce emissions. Not everything is urgent, but looking after the planet is. So we’d like to thank you for your commitment to the responsible use of parcel services.
  • With guarantees: two attempts at home delivery with a signature and in a guaranteed period. We also offer delivery to Correos Post Offices or  Citypaq lockers. If delivery cannot be made, we will leave a notification in the postbox stating the Post Office where it can be collected within 15 days. If we do not meet the deadline, we will refund the charge paid.
  • Includes Modify: easily modify the delivery details for your shipment from a computer or mobile phone and adjust it as needed in real time. You can also choose whether the recipient can make changes and what modifications they can make. This option is available for all national parcel shipments with home delivery.
  • For your peace of mind: know where your parcel is at all times, with arrival notification via the Correos app, e-mail and/or SMS to the recipients. 
  • Close to you: for Spain, Andorra and mainland Portugal deliveries.

And it should weigh no more than 30 kg!

  • Home: two delivery attempts with signature. If delivery can't be made, it will be available for 15 days at the closest Post Office. Delivery option for Individual customers and those with a Contract, and the only one possible for shipments to mainland Portugal.
  • Chosen Post Office: send to the Post Office of your choice that has a parcel delivery point, where it will be available for 15 days. We notify the recipient of its arrival via the Correos app, e-mail and/or SMS, and send various reminders if it is not collected.
  • Closest Post Office: delivery to the Correos Post Office nearest the indicated home address, where the recipient will have 15 days to collect it. We send up to two arrival notifications via the Correos app, e-mail and/or SMS (the second after 5 days).
  • Citypaq delivers to one of the smart Correos collection points located throughout the city and available at any time of day (see timetables on the website or app). 

It is important that your details and those of the recipient are clearly visible on the packaging. 

Remember that you can generate the label and pay for the shipment to speed up processing.
