What is Volumetric Weight?
Large items with a light overall weight are charged according to the space they occupied.
In these cases, Volumetric Weight is used to calculate the shipment freight cost.
International Volumetric Weights are calculated using the formula below:
Length X Width X Height in centimetres / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms.
Multiply the length x height x width in centimetres and divide the answer by 5,000. The result is the volumetric weight. The answer should be compared with the actual weight in kg. Whichever is the greater figure should be used to charge by the shipment company.
