Weight Calculations - When sending large or bulky items, the chargeable weight of the shipment can sometimes be determined by its dimensions. The chargeable weight of a shipment is the greater of the 'actual weight' and the 'volumetric weight'
The actual weight is determined by weighing the shipment on scales. The volumetric weight is determined by the formulas below. Note that there are different formulas for domestic and international shipments.
For International Shipments, the volumetric weight (in Kgs) is determined by:
( Length (cm) x Width(cm) x Height(cm) ) / 5000
Eg: (40cm x 30cm x 20cm) / 5000 = 4.8 kgs
For Domestic Shipments, the volumetric weight (in Kgs) is determined by:
( Length (cm) x Width(cm) x Height(cm) ) / 4000
Eg: (40cm x 30cm x 20cm) / 4000 = 6.0 kgs
Jet Worldwide has an online weight calculator that makes calculating the volumetric weight simple. Simply measure the outside dimensions of your consignment and enter the values into the calculator to determine the volumetric weight.
