What is Volumetric Weight?
The volumetric weight of a shipment is a calculation that reflects the density of a package. The less dense an item generally occupies more volume of space, in comparison to it’s actual weight.
The cost of transporting a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft rather than actual weight.
All shipments are charged by actual mass or volume, whichever is greater.
- Multiply the length x height x width of your parcel in centimetres.
- Divide the answer by 6000 (for International Airfreight), 5000 (for all services except International Cross Border Road Freight, Domestic Road Freight 48-96 Hours and International Airfreight) or 4000 (for International Cross Border Road Freight and Domestic Road Freight 48-96 Hours)
- The result is the volumetric weight.
