Volumetric weight

The charge for air freight is based on the parcel's volumetric weight, if this is greater than the actual weight in kg. The volumetric weight indicates how much space a parcel takes up in relation to its weight, and is calculated on the basis of the TACT rules operated by IATA (International Air Transport Association) using the following formula:

 Length x width x height in cm / 5.000

The volumetric weight applies only to DPD ICP parcels.
