HOW TO CALCULATE COST OF SHIPMENTS
VOLUMETRIC WEIGHT CHARGING FOMULAR
For all UK and International despatches, 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: Calculation
Multiply the length x height x width of your parcel in centimetres.
Divide the answer by 6,000.
The result is the volumetric weight. This figure should be compared with the actual weight in kilogrammes. Whichever is the greater figure will be used to calculate your consignment price
Metric (kg, cm)
Example: Volumetric calculation 1 pallet: 140 x 100 x 90 cm Actual Volume weight = 210 KG, this will become the volumetric weight of the shipment in Kilograms.
The actual weight of the pallet may be 150 Kgs from which the Airfreight will be charged against the volumetric weight 210 Kgs. If the pallets actual weight is 260 Kgs it would be charged against the actual weight of the shipment.
