weight, also called "dim" weight, is used because the
space a package takes on an aircraft may
cost more than the package's
You should calculate dimensional weight on every
shipment, compare that to its actual weight; the greater of
two will determine your shipping cost.
International and domestic
dimensional weights are calculated differently using the formulas
For Domestic Shipments: (in USA)
L x W x H (cubic inches) / 194 = Dimensional Weight.
Example: 30" x 24" x 22" = 15,840 / 194 = 82 lbs.
(round up to the nearest pound)
The Dimweight is given in pounds.
L x W x H (cubic inches) / 166 = Dimensional Weight.
Example: 30" x 24" x 22" = 15,840 / 166 = 95 lbs.
(round down to the nearest pound)
If you calculate Inches, your result is
going to be on LB, If you do it Metric, you will get Kg.
