Volumetric Charges

How charges are calculated for large light-weight shipments

For large light-weight shipments, our shipment rates are calculated on the greater value between the actual (dead) weight of the shipment and the volumetric (cubic) weight measured in kilograms.

How to calculate the volumetric weight

To calculate the volumetric weight, simply multiply the WIDTH by the LENGTH by the HEIGHT of your shipment (in metres) by 333.

Our volumetric (or cubic) conversion factor is 333 kilograms per cubic metre.

Our charges reflect the greater of either the actual (dead) weight OR the volumetric (cubic) weight.

Sample calculation showing the chargeable weight
  • This shipment measures 1.2m long X 1.1m wide X 1.0 m high.
  • It actually weighs only 50 kilograms.
  • Thus 1.2 X 1.1 X 1.0 X 333 = 440 kgs. (The chargeable weight).
