How to troubleshoot or resolve
Error: Bad Request: consignment.totalWeight:Maximum value exceeded TransactionID
What it means: DPD Classic By Road requires a minimum weight of 200g.
Error: Invalid tax identifier. Be sure to use EORI for international shipments from the UK.
What it means: You may receive an error if you attempt to use a VAT number instead of an EORI number. This does not necessarily mean the VAT code is invalid itself, but that you should be using an EORI code to ship internationally via DPD Local and not a VAT number.
