Calculating Size and Weight

How big is too big?

Here's all you need to know about the size and weight of your international shipments.

Calculating Volumetric Weight

Large, lightweight packages are charged at their volumetric weight for the space they occupy, rather than their actual physical weight. To determine volumetric weight, first calculate the volume of your package and then multiply this figure by the relevant conversion factor.
