Because different couriers have different policies on a weight and size limits, getting the correct weights and measurements is very important. Please note if the reported measurements are different to the actual ones you will be charged an admin fee, along with a delivery rate upgrade to the correct price band. There may be a delay before this affects your account balance.
1. Measure the Length, Width and Height on each parcel in CM.
2. Weigh your parcel in KGs.
All our quoted prices are based on the Volumetric KG which isbased on the formula below:
Width x Length x Height in centimetres / 6000 (Varies depending on courier) = Volumetric Weight in kilograms.
The system will automatically select from the actual weight or the volumetric weight whichever is higher.
Therefore if you have a 50 x 30 x 30 cm parcel but only weight 1 kg it will still be calculated as a 10 kg parcel.
