Volumetric Weight Calculations

  • Packages by Air or UK - L x W x H in CM, divided by 5000 = weight to be charged
  • i.e. actual weight is 3 kilos, size 50 x 40 x 30 CM, divide by 5000  = 12 kilos to be charged.
  • Parcels by European Road - L x W x H in CM, divided by 5000 = weight to be charged.
