Volumetric weight is a calculation of your **parcel’s weight based on its length, width and height.**

Parcel weights are calculated on a volumetric basis based on both weight and dimensions so **the volumetric weight of your parcel may be greater than the actual weight itself**.

These measurements try to regulate the cost of shipments in which the size is proportionally larger in comparison to the real weight. That is, space the items occupy in a delivery vehicle.

How do you get the volumetric weight? Using the following formula:

(Length x Width x Height) / N*

*The value of "N" varies according to on the carrier, and will be automatically calculated in the shipment quote.
