* Packages that do not meet with the minimum weight requirements at our Canada, Dubai, South- Africa locations will automatically be sent by Express. All charges for Asian countries do not include extra charges for NAFDAC were applicable. Prices are subject to review/discount based on volumes.

All charges are based on either the actual (dead) or volumetric (dimensional) weight of the package depending on which is higher.

The cost of transporting a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight. This is the volumetric (or dimensional) weight.

The volumetric weight of a shipment is a calculation that reflects the density of a package. A less dense item generally occupies more volume of space, in comparison to its actual weight.

Volumetric weight is calculated by multiplying the length x height x width of a package and dividing the result by a volumetric factor.

The volumetric factor varies with the unit of measure. We use the following formulas to calculate volumetric weight:

The shipping weight indicated on a merchant order confirmation may be based on ground shipping or domestic air shipping from the merchant to our hub location.

Depending on the carrier and size of package, the merchant’s ground shipping charges may or may not utilize volumetric weight calculation.

If the carrier used by the merchant does use volumetric weight calculation for ground or for domestic air, the volumetric weight calculation will use a different volumetric factor and the volumetric weight will be lower than that used for international air shipments.
