Volumetric weight calculator
Volumetric weight refers to the overall size of a parcel and is measured in volumetric kilograms. Volumetric weight can be calculated by multiplying the length, width, and height of a parcel (in cm) and dividing that figure by 6000 for domestic shipments but dividing by 5000 for International Shipments. .

Volumetric weight is a loading technique for freight transport including Air Freight, Courier, and postal services. The compulsory calculating volumetric weight includes:
- Apply to the TACT Rules, Section 8.2
- Applying the correct shipping rate
- Ensuring adequate space when shipping.
- The volume ccupied by the payload in a hold or compartment is finite and depends on the internal dimensions of the aircraft. Volume represents another limitation to the carriage of cargo.
