Volume Calculator

Please Select the Calculator you wish to use:

Enter Dimensions:
Please enter the dimensions of your parcel to calculate the CUBIC WEIGHT. If your Cubic Weight should be greater than the parcels ACTUAL DEAD WEIGHT in kilograms, you will be charged on whichever is greater.This is a representation ONLY of an average calculation amongst a variety of MAIN CARRIERS


BILLABLE WEIGHT = (actual weight in kg vs cubic weight)

which ever is greater

For example:  Your parcel after weighing on scales (16kg) and dimensions 120x60x40cm for DOMESTIC shipment.  Cubic weight 72kg (as displayed on our calculator above) The result: your parcels cubic weight is greater than actual weight and the freight cost is billed at the greater cubic weight value.

Actual or Dimensional?

Determining which weight to use in calculating your rate requires that you determine which rule applies.  Different rules apply depending on the service selected.

Dimensional weight considers density, which is the amount of space a package occupies in relation to its actual weight, to determine billable weight.

Note: Packages that exceed CARRIERS weight and size limit are not accepted for transportation.  Contact our customer service representatives for details.

Irregularly-shaped Packages

Measure boxes or containers that are not rectangular to determine the dimensional weight and whether the package is within maximum limits.

Treat the irregularly shaped package as if it is a regular rectangular box.  Measure the length, width and height of the package from its extreme points.
