How do you calculate the volumetric weight?
For all International couriers, where the price is based on the weight of the parcel or consignment, we calculate the volumetric weight of packages based upon their dimensions to determine the price you pay. You can calculate the volumetric weight of your parcel by using the following:
• Multiply the length x height x width of your parcel in centimeters.
• Divide the answer by 5,000.
• The result is the volumetric weight. This figure should be compared with the actual weight in kilograms. Whichever is the greater figure will be used to calculate your consignment price.
• Please note that you need to round all weights up to the next half kilogram.
For example, Assume the actual weight of your package is 8kg, and the dimensions are 30cm x 40cm x 50cm
