What Is the Cost of International Shipping?

The international shipping cost is affected by the cargo’s country, destination, and dimensional weight. What is it, and how to calculate it?

Dimensional weight and actual weight are two different concepts related to measuring the weight of objects. It is not enough to indicate the weight of your goods and pay the estimated shipping rates. Knowing how much space the parcel will take up during transportation is also essential.

  • The actual weight is the weight of the object measured on the scale. It is usually expressed in kilograms or pounds and is used to determine the total mass of an object.
  • Dimensional weight is calculated from the object's length, width, and height. For example, if the cargo has a large volume but a small weight, its delivery cost will be determined by the dimensional weight, not by the actual weight.

There is a formula to calculate the dimensional weight of the load:

  • Dimensional weight (lbs) = Length (inches) x Width (inches) x Height (inches) / 139.
  • Dimensional weight (kg) = Length (cm) x Width (cm) x Height (cm) / 5 000.
