Q: What is cubic weight?
The cubic weight is the parcel’s volume (Length x Width x Height) multiplied by 250.
Q: What are the chargeable kilograms on your invoice?
Chargeable kilograms is the greater of either the actual kilograms (dead weight) or the cubic kilograms.
For example: The parcel measures 70cm length x 40 cm width x 40 cm height, and its actual weight is 10 kilograms. Cubic weight is 0.7 x 0.4 x 0.4 x 250= 28 kgs
The cubic weight in this example is the chargeable weight as it is greater than the dead weight
