The volumetric or dimensional weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the shipment to ascertain which is greater; the higher weight is used to calculate the shipment cost.


Calculation formula for volume(dimentional)weight
FORMULA: ..CBM X 167KG/CBM = ....... KG
CBM=L x W x H
L= Lengh in meter (m)
W= Width in meter (m)
H= Height in meter (m)
If real weight is 100 kg but the volume ( dimentional) kg is 150, Airline will calculate price as it is 150 kg shipment
Real life Example for Airline dimensional weight:- how to proceed
Customer has a shipment in China: as follows
(L= 1.2 meters) x (W= 0.8 meters) x (H= 0.9 meters )
and weighs is 90kg,
QUESTION::
how many kg customer have to pay for this shipment?

1 STEP: CALCULATE THE VOLUME (DIMENTIONAL) WEIGHT: (1.2M X 0.8M X 0.9M) X 167KG/CBM = 144.3KG

2 Step: COMPATR THE RESULT TO THE ACTUAL WEIGHT
90 kg and 144.3 kg, Airline accept that your shipment is 144.3 kg
