Volumetric Weight Calculation

Prohibited & Restricted Shipping Guide



Why Volumetric Weight?

In general, the volumetric weight of a shipment is used to calculate the density of a package and can reflect on the shipping cost.

Multiple-piece shipment volumetric weight is the sum of all volumetric weight of all packages within the shipment.

When Does This Apply?

Shipping charge will be based on the volumetric weight of the shipment when the volumetric weight exceeds actual weight.

The formula determines the volumetric weight in kilograms (kg). Increase fractions of a weight to the next full kilogram.

Volumetric Weight Formula

Length x Width x Height (cm)

Length x Width x Height (in)


60 x 50 x 40 cm

= 24 kg (volumetric weight)
