NB The volumetric weight and the taxable weight


When it comes to shipping services in logistics , there is a parameter that comes back frequently: the volumetric (or dimensional) weight. It is a measure that relates the volume and weight of the goods transported: a measurement that is carried out when the service is requested, for the calculation of the tariff to be applied.


How is the volumetric weight calculated?


  • Height in cm x Width in cm x Depth in cm = cmc

  • Example = 40x60x30 = 72,000 cubic cm


At this point, all we need to do is apply the coefficient to the volume of our package to obtain the volumetric weight: 72,000 cubic cm / 5,000 = 14.4 kgs


To identify the taxable weight, it is still necessary to make a comparison between the real weight of the package and the weight obtained from the formula and choose the greater measure between the two: if the package actually weighed

10 kgs , the measurement of 14.4 kgs resulting from the calculation must be chosen as the taxable weight.
