The volumetric weight reflects the density of a package. A less dense item occupies more volume of space compared to a higher density package of the same weight. The shipment cost is calculated based on the volumetric weight or the actual weight whichever is higher.
Formula: Volume weight = L x B x H x No of Carton
L = Length of carton in cm
B = Breadth of carton in cm
H = Height of carton in cm
