Volume Calculation

NOTE: The courier charge of a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft rather than the actual weight, this is known as volumetric (or dimensional) weight. If you are not sure, please contact your supplier for package dimensions as Tuma Express has no control of packaging from source.

An Example:
  • A Customer ships a parcel that is 1kg in actual weight, the customer’s packaging dimensions are 30cm (L) x 25cm (W) x 20cm (H).
  • Multiply 30 x 25 x 20 = 15000.
  • Then divide 15000 by 5000 to get the Dimensional Weight = 3kg.
  • The customer will be charged for 3kg rather than for actual weight of 1kg
