The weight of the parcel or carton in which your parcel is packed when weighed on the weighing scale is know as the ACTUAL WEIGHT. This packing advicewill help you to save money on your international courier services India.
To Calculate the volumetric weight of your shipment, simply multiply the
length(cm) x height(cm) x width(cm) and divide the result by 5000.
For Eg : you are sending a package that weighs 8kgs, but the dimensions are 40cm x 30cm x 50cm
--------------- = 12kg
If you are sending multiple packages, calculate each weight separately and this is the 'total chargeable weight'. The Chargeable weight is dead weight or volumetric weight, whichever is higher
