Dim Calculator For Air Freight

You will need a Javascript compatible browser to use our quick calculator below.

Dimensional weight, also called "dim" weight, is used because the space a package takes on an aircraft may
cost more than the package's actual weight.
You should calculate dimensional weight on every shipment, compare that to its actual weight; the greater of
the two will determine your shipping cost.
International and domestic dimensional weights are calculated differently using the formulas below.

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.
If you have a Javascript compatible browser, you can use our quick calculator below.

For International Shipments:
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.
