VOLUMETRIC WEIGHT CALCULATIONS

How to calculate Volumetric weight



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

40x30x50
---------------         = 12kg
5000

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

NOTE: HIGHER OF THE TWO WEIGHTS WILL BE THE CHARGEABLE WEIGHT.

Using the above packing advice you can save on your International Courier Services India and it totally depends on the content which you are sending if it is going to take more space then you be charged to volumetric weight.

Tips
