What is「Volumetric Weight」？
The larger the size of the parcel, the more space the parcel take up on the aircraft. 「Volumetric Weight」 is used by couriers to calculate the fee by the parcel’s volume.
The calculation of volumetric weight is as below:
Example A: The actual weight of a large plastic box after packaging is 0.5KG, with a length of 150cm, a width of 10cm and a height of 10cm. Its volumetric weight is 3KG (150*10*10/5000). Since the volumetric weight is greater than the actual weight, the volumetric weight will be used for the chargeable weight of this parcel. That is, 3KG is the chargeable weight of this package.
Example B: The actual weight of a set of dumbbells after packaging is 8KG, the length is 50cm, the width is 10cm, and the height is 10cm. The volume weight is 1KG (50*10*10/5000). Since the actual weight is greater than the volume weight, the billable weight of this parcel will be the actual weight, that is, 8KG is the billable weight of this parcel.
