Calculate volumetric weight:

 

To work out the volumetric weight of an item please follow this calculation:

 

Height of box (cm) x width of box (cm) x length of box (cm).  Then divide this figure by 5000 and you get the volumetric weight of the item. 

 

Example 1:

 

A box with dimensions 50cm long x 80cm wide x 40 cm high weighing 5kg would have a volumetric weight of 32kg (50x80x40÷5000) and hence this would need putting down as the weight when booking the delivery on Crowfoots

 

Example 2:

 

A box with dimensions 20cm long x 45cm wide x 40 cm high weighing 20kg would have a volumetric weight of only 7.2kg (45x40x20÷5000) and hence the actual weight of the box (20kg) would need putting down as the weight when booking  the delivery on Crowfoots

 

Volumetric Tool:

 

For customers regularly sending out bulkier parcels why not take advantage of our volumetric tool on our dispatch software which allows you to enter multiple parcels and it works out the volumetric weight of the total consignment
