Know Your Parcel's Volumetric Weight at Xpress Cargo

At all transfers whereby the cost of your shipment is controlled by the heaviness of your bundle, we compute the volumetric load of your bundle to decide the value you pay. This figure is relevant for both global shipments and UK deliveries.


The term ‘Volumetric Weight’ applies to the measure of actual space that a thing devours.

Regularly utilized in cargo transport, the volumetric weight depends on the cubic elements of your transfer and may bear no connection to the real weight of an item.

L= length, W= width, and H= Height of the object

With the volumetric weight determined, this figure is then contrasted with the genuine load of your transfer. Whichever figure is higher will be utilized to decide your delivery cost. If the volumetric load of your package is 18kg and the real weight is 12kg, the volumetric weight will be utilized to compute the expense of your shipment.


The significant advantage of computing your package’s volumetric weight is that you set aside cash by keeping away from the potential charges you would somehow or another get for confusing your bundle’s weight.
