APO/FPO/DPO Zip Restrictions


In addition to standard U.S. Postal Service mailing restrictions, mail addressed to APO/FPO/DPO addresses is subject to further restrictions regarding content, preparation and handling, in addition to size and weight.

Based on these restrictions, ShipitAPO will, to the best of its ability, determine if a package we receive on your behalf is mailable to your APO/FPO address. Also, please bear in mind that since we mail your packages via Priority Mail®, to help ensure a timely delivery to your APO/FPO/DPO, the size and weight restrictions are 108 inches and 70 pounds respectively. When packages are over 108 inches but not exceeding 130 inches, we will use Parcel Post. For more detailed information, please contact your local Postmaster. Sound judgement should be used when having items sent to an APO/FPO/DPO address; judgement that helps you envision how large a box in which the item might packed or how much an item might weigh when packed.

By knowing the Zip Code Restrictions for your destination APO/FPO/DPO address and using sound judgement, you can virtually eliminate the possibility of packages exceeding the respective restrictions.
