Couriers and freight companies define weight differently when it comes to billing you for a shipment. Use our handy Dimensional Weight Calculator to determine what weight they consider to be your dimensional and chargeable weight for the sake of checking transport quotes and budgeting an accurate landed cost.

To use the Dimensional Weight Calculator you will need:

  1. Your parcel information, including the dimensions in centimetres and weight in kilograms.
  2. The conversion factor used by your courier or freight company. (You can confirm this number with them if you are not sure).

Simply fill your data into the appropriate fields to determine your dimensional weight. Your courier or freight company compares this to the actual weight of your parcel and considers the larger figure the chargeable weight according to which you are billed.
