All packages must be labeled with project number, owner’s name and telephone number.

If equipment/materials are being sent from outside the European Union, we strongly recommend using an ATA Carnet. This will make the custom formalities much easier and faster. TSL reserves the right to charge customers who fail to follow this recommendation for extra expenses that may arise.

When equipment/materials are being sent on pallets, the recommended maximum dimensions are:

EUR-Pallet 800 x 1200 mm

Industrial-Pallet 1000 x 1200 mm

Maximum height (Pallet inclusive) 1985 mm

If any of the dimensions exceeds the maximum, it is obligatory to contact TSL prior to the delivery.

Return shipment from TSL

Certain irradiations may result in significant activation of customers’ equipment/materials. The TSL Radiation Protection Unit will perform necessary measurements and decide whether the irradiated objects may be sent back directly or have to be stored at TSL until the residual radioactivity decreases to the level acceptable for shipment. If you are uncertain in your planning, please contact Head of TSL Radiation Protection unit: elke.passoth@tsl.uu.se. Irradiated objects that have to be stored at TSL must be labeled with return address, customer’s name, e-mail address, and telephone number. All equipment/materials that shall be sent back to the customer directly after the campaign must be packed. The packages must be labeled with return address, customer’s name and telephone number. Please inform the person responsible for shipments (see above) about the total weight of the packages, preferred transport company, account number, VAT number of your company, and transport insurance, if applicable. The return shipment can be organized either by the customer or by the person responsible for shipments at TSL. For return shipment of equipment/materials sent to TSL from outside the European Union without an ATA Carnet, a Commercial Invoice must be supplied, where all the items and prices are specified. If you prefer to leave equipment/materials at TSL until next campaign, please contact the person responsible for shipments (see above) for instructions.
