How to calculate volumetric weight?

  The volumetric weight of a package 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 weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the package to ascertain which is greater; the higher weight is used to calculate freight.
