What is Volumetric Weight?
A shipment’s volumetric weight is a calculation that reflects the density of a package. In general, a less weight item takes up more volume of space in relation to its actual weight. As a result, the volumetric dimensional or cubed, or DIM weight is calculated and compared to the actual weight of the shipment to determine which is greater; the greater weight is used to calculate the shipment cost.
The courier will compare the volumetric weight to the actual physical weight of a parcel and charge whichever is
the greater of the two (also known as billable weight or chargeable weight)
For an example – If a box has a limit of 30 kg and you put only 10-12kg in that box, then the airline will charge 30kg, not 10-12kg. In comparison, sending duvets, pillows, soft toys & so on which take more space than the actual weight.
