Calculate the volumetric weight of your shipment. Sometimes, large items with a light overall weight can be charged according to the space they take up on aircraft. In these cases, Volumetric Weight, or dimensional (Dim) weight, is used to calculate the shipment cost.
It is recommended that you calculate the Volumetric Weight for every shipment that you send, then compare this to its actual weight. The greater weight of the two is used to work out the price that we charge you.
How to Calculate Volumetric Weight :
International Volumetric Weights are calculated using the formula below :
Volumetric Weight Calculation National
By Air - Length x Width x Height in centimetres / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms
By Surface - Length x Width x Height in centimetres / 4000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms
Volumetric Weight Calculation International
Length x Width x Height in centimetres / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms
Charges will be applicable as per Actual weight or Volumetric weight which ever is Greater.
