What is volumetric weight?

The basis for the calculation of volumetric weight is the size of the shipment. The formula is width*length*height /139. Some shipments may weigh little but with large dimensions. This means the postage fee is higher than with heavy parcels.

What is actual weight?

Actual weight is how much the scale really shows with your parcel.

What is billable weight?
Billable weight determines the final price of transport. The actual or the volumetric weight is always charged, always using the higher of the two values.
How can re-packaging my parcel save me money and prevent possible damages during transport?

Sometimes the sellers pack their goods in larger boxes than strictly necessary and you pay for extra volume with the carrier for no reason. We will put your goods in a smaller box (for free?), helping you save substantially.

* Shipping fees are calculated using actual or volumetric weight. Volumetric weight is calculated as width*length*height /139. The carrier chooses the manner of calculating the price of transport that is financially most advantageous for them.
