How to Calculate the Volumetric Weight of Your Express Shipment

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.
For Time Definite, Day Definite and international Same Day shipments, the conversion factor is 5000. The formula for calculating volumetric weight is length x width x height (cm) / 5000

Notes: There are 2 charge fee

1/ Is calculated according to groweight = A

2/ Is by volume.volume calculation formula:

Length * width* height (cm) = B

Compare between groweight & volume for charge fee. Which is bigger than the charge if A bigger than B charge A and B bigger than A charge B
