Size and weight calculations

For shipments that are either too large or irregular

Calculating volumetric weight

Large, lightweight packages are charged at their volumetric weight for the space they occupy, rather than their actual physical weight. To determine volumetric weight, first calculate the volume of your package and then multiply this figure by the relevant conversion factor.
