Volumetric weight

Enter the dimensions

The weight and the space a package takes up are important when determining the shipping costs. Therefore when calculating the price of your shipment, the so-called volumetric weight is also taken into account. It is important to calculate the volumetric weight for every shipment and to compare it with the actual weight in kilogrammes. The shipping costs are determined based on the higher of the two ‘weights’.

To calculate the volumetric weight, you first determine the volume: length x width x height (in centimetres). For shipments by air and the Express service of international couriers, you divide the volume by the factor 6000 (in some cases 5000). For the Economy service via the integrators, you divide the volume by 4000. For Domestic shipments via the integrators, you use the factor 3333.


Actual factor

The actual factor can vary per carrier. For a current quote of the volumetric weight (or dimensional weight) of your shipments, you are of course welcome to contact us any time.
