The cost of shipments can be affected by the amount of space taken up on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight. This is the volumetric (or dimensional) weight. Calculate the volumetric weight below.
Calculate the volumetric weight of your shipment
The volumetric weight of a shipment is a calculation that reflects its density. A less dense shipment generally occupies more volume of space, in comparison to its actual weight. The volumetric or dimensional weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of a shipment to ascertain which is greater; the higher weight is used to calculate the shipment cost.
