### Volumetric Calculation

**How to calculate domestic volumetric (cubic) weight**

For TNT Domestic Express services the standard volumetric calculation is based on 250 kg's per cubic metre. To calculate the volumetric weight for these types of shipments (chargeable weight) multiply the Length (L) x Width (W) x Height (H) in centimetres and divide by 4,000.

For Example.

**50 (L) x 30 (W) x 40 (H) = 60,000 divided by 4,000 equals 15 kg volumetric weight.**

Please note that TNT charges the higher of either the dead (actual) or volumetric weight.

**How to calculate international volumetric (cubic) weight**

For TNT Economy Express services - effective 9 June 2010 (including Economy IDE) and TNT Express Services (including Express Documents, Express Parcels, Express Freight and Express IDE) the international calculation is based on 200 kg's per cubic metre. To calculate the volumetric weight for these types of shipments (chargeable weight) multiply the Length (L) x Width (W) x Height (H) in centimetres and divide by 5,000.

For Example.

**50 (L) x 30 (W) x 40 (H) = 60,000 divided by 5,000 equals 12 kg volumetric weight.**

Please note that TNT charges the higher of either the dead (actual) or volumetric weight.
