How to calculate dimensional weight?

Dimensional weight (also known as volumetric weight) is a value adopted by carriers worldwide for calculating shipping rates. It uses a formula of length multiplied by width and height, divided by dim factor (LxWxH)/SF, which may vary from carrier to carrier.

More about Dimensional Weight
Dimensional weight kg/cm calculations determine shipping costs based on a package's volume rather than its actual weight. Carriers like FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, and Canada Post use dimensional weight to ensure fair pricing for bulky, lightweight shipments. To calculate dimensional weight, carriers measure a package's length, width, and height, then apply a formula (multiplying dimensions and dividing by a dimensional factor).

Dimensional weight significantly impacts shipping rates, especially for larger but lightweight packages. Carriers charge based on the higher value between actual weight and dimensional weight. This ensures accurate pricing, preventing undercharging for spacious yet lighter shipments. Properly calculating dimensional weight is crucial for cost-efficient shipping, as inaccuracies can lead to unexpected costs. Understanding each carrier's dimensional weight rules and accurately measuring packages ensures precise rate calculations and helps businesses optimize shipping strategies while avoiding unforeseen expenses.
