4; Idea, as a native British person you should really know that it's 30.0 (point not comma) kg..... Also, Germans say "thanks in advance", British people do not.

Antwort: 
Average or maximum?  #793543

Average weight of up to is illogical unless you are talking about a number of groups of parcels.
...with a maximum (weight) of 30 kg each/per parcel (or 30.0 kg, if the decimal point is necessary).
...each parcel weighing up to 30 kg.
The first option is better if it is an instruction - you can't send parcels over 30 kg; the second is more if it is a report about parcels that have been sent - none weighed more than 30 kg.

Either 20 000 kg or twenty thousand kilogrammes/kilograms not a mixture of numbers and words.

I have also had the thought that your first language isn't English or German. It is useful to know things like this because those answering can tailor their answers accordingly.

There is  such  phrase in the  dictionary and  british people use  it  very often, so I suppose  Danke im Voraus is just equivalent that exists in German language.

No, it is not illogical, cause  our  company will receive from 20 000 kg to 60 000 parcels per month with average weight of from 10 kg to 30,0 kg each parcel,  but we  don't want to write from 10 kg, so I  think in this  case it is  better  to write   "Average weight of up 30 kg". Many thanks.

Each individual parcel has a weight, not an average weight.  #793554

A group of parcels can have an average weight - the total weight of all parcels divided by the number of parcels.

If you take all parcels delivered every month for a year and worked out the average for each month, then you could have different averages of up to 30 kg.

But if you are just talking about one set of parcels, e.g. one month's worth, and you work out the average, then this is just one figure, e.g. 30 kg, so you can't say the average is up to 30 kg.
However, if all the parcels weigh different amounts, e.g. between 10 kg and 30 kg, then you can say up to a maximum of 30 kg.

frown upon "thanks in advance."  That hasn't stopped people from using it.  But be aware that there are some who'd take offense.
