The cost of transporting a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies, rather than the actual weight. This is the volumetric (or dimensional) weight. For international shipping practice, the volumetric weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the item – the higher weight is used to calculate shipping cost.
The formula to calculate full volumetric weight is:
Malaysia and Singapore orders: volumetric weight (kg) = length x height x width (cm)/ 6,000
(Eg 9.01 kg = 10 kg) Example: volumetric weight 10 kg, actual weight 5kg. Chargeable weight = 10kg.
The formula to calculate semi volumetric weight (kg) = length x height x width (cm)/ 6000
(Eg 9.01 kg = 10 kg) Example: volumetric weight 10kg, actual weight 5kg. (10kg + 5kg) /2 = 7.5kg. Chargeable weight = 8kg
Airway/ Sea express: Parcel overlength than 120cm or both size over 70cm will charge overlength fee.
Sea Shipment: Parcel overlength than 200cm will charge overlength fee.
