What is the dimensional weight?

A practical size that is used to evaluate the costs of a shipment by air freight. The chargeable weight is the basis for calculating the freight rate.

Dimensional weight calculated:

(length (cm) * width (cm) * height (cm)) / service provider-dependent divisor = volumetric weight in (kg)

Common divisor = 6000 (166.7 kg/m³); however, parcel service providers often also use 5000 (200 kg/m³)
