How do I calculate my parcel's volumetric weight?

Parcel weights are calculated on a volumetric basis based on both weight and dimensions . Therefore, the volumetric weight of your parcel may be greater than the actual weight itself.

Different couriers use slightly different calculations to determine a parcel volume so please use the calculator below.

Want to know your parcel's volumetric weight? It's easy!

Simply enter your parcel details into our clever Volumetric Weight Calculator below, and it will calculate your volumetric weight for you!

To make it easier you can even switch between inches and centimetres.


Cubic metres {{getCubicMeters(parcelLength, parcelWidth, parcelHeight) | number:2}}
Cubic feet {{getCubicFeet(parcelLength, parcelWidth, parcelHeight) | number:2}}
Effective weight {{getEffectiveWeight(parcelLength, parcelWidth, parcelHeight) | number:2}}kg
