Calculating Volumetric weights

Large, lightweight packages are charged at their volumetric weight for the space they occupy rather than their weight.

To calculate the volume in meters, multiply length by width by height. Then multiply this figure by the relevant conversion factor (250 For All TNT Direct Services).

For example, to calculate the volumetric weight of a shipment sent within the UK using the dimensions shown in the illustration, you would multiply:


Volumetric weight box
Length 0.9m
Width 0.4m
X Height 0.3m
X (conversion factor) 250
Volumetric weight equals 27kg


Volumetric weight cylinder
Diameter 0.3m
Height 0.4m
X Diameter 0.3m
X (conversion factor) 250
Volumetric weight equals 9kg
