What is volumetric weight? How do I calculate the dimensional weight of my shipment?


Volumetric weight, also known as dimensional or chargeable weight, is calculated by multiplying the height x width x length (in centimetres) of each parcel within your consignment. Divide this figure by 5000 (if the shipment is going via air courier) or 4000 (if the shipment is going via road). Then round-up the total to the next whole kilogram. If this figure is greater than the actual weight, you will be charged on the dimensional (as opposed to the actual) weight of the consignment.
