The step-by-step process is simple and very practical, as even without having the exact data on the package size and the weight of the order, it is possible to have an estimate of the value and delivery time. Check out the tutorial that TecMundo has prepared.

Simulating shipping on the Post Office website

To simulate the freight value for deliveries in the national territory, follow the instructions below:

1. Enter the official Correios page, at this link.

2. In the option “Prices and Deadlines” select the National Prices and Deadlines Simulator.

3. With the page open, fill in the zip code of origin (sender) and zip code of destination (recipient). In case you don’t know, click on the option “I don’t know the zip code” to get help and search the site itself.

4. Select the type of service, and if you are in doubt which is the best, check the box “Compare with all available parcel services” to receive an estimate of more than one type of delivery.

5. Select the format of the box that will be sent, having the options “Box/Packaging” or “Roll/Cylinder or Ball”.

6. In the item “Object”, choose if the packaging is standard by Correios — they already add the value of the packaging — or not. Packages can be purchased at the agency where the order will be posted.

7. If the packaging is not standard, select the option “Other Packaging” and fill in the dimensions (height, width and length) in centimeters and the estimated weight.

9. Click on “Calculate”.

10. The website will present the shipping cost and a forecast of the delivery time.
