Where possible, we recommend using centimetres (CM) and kilograms (KG) due to the more precise nature of these measurements.

Using CM and KG

To calculate the volumetric weight:

Volumetric Weight = (Depth×Height×Width 5000

The overall price of the shipment is based on the greater value between the actual weight and the volumetric weight.

The formula considers both the size and weight of the items, meaning that light, large items may cost the same as small, heavy items.

Example:

A 15 kg suitcase that measures 50 cm x 70 cm x 40 cm.

The actual weight is 15 kg, however, the volumetric weight is 28 kg, as:

(50×70×40)÷5000=28

So, this suitcase would fall into the 30 kg price bracket.

Using INCHES and Pounds (lbs)

To calculate the volumetric weight:

Volumetric Weight = (Depth×Height×Width 139

Example:

A 40 lb suitcase that measures 12 inches x 28 inches x 19 inches.

The actual weight is 40 lbs, however, the volumetric weight is 46 lbs, as:

(12×28×19)÷139=45.92

So, this suitcase would fall into the 44-66 lbs price bracket.

Items over 1.2m or 47 inches

If your item exceeds 1.2m or 47 inches in any dimension, it must be sorted manually, incurring a charge of £/\$/€80 per item.

The maximum length you can send on any international service is 220 cm or 86 inches. We cannot accept any items exceeding this size.
