- For large light-weight consignments rates are calculated on the greater
value between the actual (dead) weight of the consignment and the cubic weight measured in kilograms.
HOW DO WE CALCULATE THE CUBIC WEIGHT? -To calculate the cubic weight, simply multiply the WIDTH by the LENGTH by the HEIGHT of your shipment (in centimetres) and then divide by 4000. Our cubic conversion factor is 250 kilograms per cubic metre. Our charges reflect the greater of either the actual weight OR the cubic weight.
This shipment measures 50cm long X 40 cm wide X 30 cm high.
and It's actual weight is 10 kilograms.
Thus 50 X 40 X 30 / 4000 = 15 kgs. ( The chargeable weight ) .
