What is Chargeable weight?

Chargeable Weight is the Actual Gross Weight or the Volumetric Weight of the shipment – whichever is the greater


For Air Freight, *chargeable weight is Every 0.5kg Per Package and thereafter. Invoice will be based on the chargeable weight.

Shipping Tip: As per freight industry practice, the chargeable weight of a package is calculated based on Volumetric or Actual weight, whichever is higher.
Volumetric weight of a package is a calculation that reveals the density of a package and we use the below formula to derive the volumetric weight of a package:
Volumetric weight = [length(cm) x width(cm) x height(cm) ] / 5,000cm
You can advise your merchant to ensure proper packaging or pack your purchase into a smallest possible box.
