If the volumetric weight exceeds the actual weight, the former will be used to calculate the shipment costs.
Actual Weight: The gross weight of the shipment (including the packaging).
Volumetric weight: Weight which converted the capacity of cargo as 1 kg per 5,000 cm3 (kg is the standard capacity of IATA in 5,000 cm3/kg)
* Calculation method
Volumetric weight (kg) = length (cm) x Width (cm) x height (cm) /5,000 (cm³/kg) (fraction rounds up every 0.5kg)
* Example of calculation
In the case of size 40cm x 50cm x 60cm and an actual weight is 15 kg load, the volumetric weight is set to 40 x 50 x 60 ÷ 5,000 = 24.00kg, and the charge is computed with 24 kg based on the volumetric weight.
