Frequently Asked Questions

What is Volumetric Weight?

All Courier Companies use two weights, actual weight and volumetric weight, actual weight is what your consignment weighs on the scale whereas volumetric weight is the size or space that your consignment takes up based on the dimensions of the consignment. Customers are charge on whichever is the larger of the two.
For Overnight / Next Day consignments the volumetric factor is 5000, for Economy Freight the factor is 4000.
Example:
Overnight Service
Length 45cm x width 80cm x height 100cm / 5000 =72kg
