What is a volumetric weight?

We use volumetric weight when determining the weight of the shipments we send and we understand that this is not always an easy concept to grasp. We want to break down the details for you in order to make it as clear as possible.

The cost of transporting a shipment can be affected by the amount of space using in the aircraft, rather than the actual weight. This is the volumetric (or dimensional) weight.

The volumetric weight of a shipment is a calculation that reflects the density of a package. A less dense item generally occupies more volume of space, in comparison to its actual weight.

The volumetric or dimensional weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the shipment to ascertain which is greater; the higher weight is used to calculate the shipment cost. Calculating the volume weight:

Volumetric weight is calculated by multiplying the length x height x width of a package and dividing the result by 166 factor. CALCULATE THE VOLUMETRIC WEIGHT OF YOUR SHIPMENT

International Volumetric Weights are calculated using the formula below:

Volumetric Weight in pounds (Length x Width x Height in inches) / 166

That factor varies with the unit of measure. Since we use kilograms to calculate shipping charges, we use the following formulas to calculate volumetric weight:
