# What is volumetric weight?

December 8, 2021 at 6:08 pm

The volumetric weight of the shipment (overall weight) is a calculated value that reflects the density of the cargo.

The calculation of the delivery cost is made according to the actual value of the physical weight of the express shipment with packaging. If the volumetric weight of an express shipment exceeds its physical weight, then for the purposes of calculating the cost of delivery of an express shipment, its volumetric weight is taken into account. The volumetric weight of an express shipment is calculated based on the dimensions of its packaging using the formula:

For a box, volumetric weight (kg) = (length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm)) / 5000.

For a roll, volumetric weight (kg) = (Circle area (cm2) x Height (cm)) / 5000. Circle area = R2, where R is the radius of the circle (cm), = 3.14.

Restrictions on dimensions 120 * 50 * 50 cm, the weight of one piece is not more than 30 kg.

Others are subject to agreement.
