Volumetric weight is also known as dimensional weight or DIM weight. It measures the total quantity of space your package occupies.

The cost of shipping your package internationally depends on the weight of your package. 

This is because the cost of shipping a package can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight. 

Shipping carriers determine the cost of your package by comparing whichever is greater: the gross weight or volumetric weight.

Gross weight also known as actual weight is the total weight of your package. 

Volumetric weight or dimensional weight is the actual space the package takes up. 

If the dimensional weight is greater than the actual weight, shipping carriers will use the dimensional weight to calculate shipping costs. 

Volumetric weight is used to determine the weight of a package, which determines the shipping costs.  Air cargo has weight restrictions and limited space. 

Therefore, shipping carriers will select based on whichever figure is greater. Volumetric weight is used to provide a clear rationale for this principle. 

For example, an airplane has both weight restrictions and limited belly space so the shipping carrier must control the weight and volume of cargo it carries.

Calculate the volumetric weight of a package by multiplying the length by width by height in centimeters and dividing it by the dimensional weight divisor.

Calculate DHL volumetric weight of a package by using this formula:

Volumetric weight in kg = (length x width x height of the package in cm) / 5000

For example:

You are sending a package dimension that is 40cm x 30cm x 50cm.

Volumetric weight: 40cm x 30cm x 50cm / 5,000 = 12kg
