Packaging, Weight and Volume


Parcels must be securely packaged, preferably in a cardboard box, with name and address of both the sender and the recipient - must be written on 2 (two) sides of a parcel.

The cost of your package can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight.

To determine the cost of shipping, the greater of the actual weight or dimensional weight is utilized.

The following are formulas for the dimensional weight in lbs. and kg*

Dimensional Weight

* This formula only applies to AIR shipments

Dimensional Weight {lbs} = L (in) x W (in) x H (in) / 139
Dimensional Weight {kg} = L (cm) x W (cm) x H (cm) / 5000

* This formula only applies to AIR shipments
