The weight calculation and the actual volume of shipment
Weight is one of the main factors that determine the final cost of shipment.
But also the volume occupied is important.
In the road transport sector it is taken as the standard reference volume weight ratio of 1:300
It’s assumed that a cubic meter of shipment weights 300 kg.
Shipping rates are calculated based on the total actual weight or the total dimensional weight (also called taxable) of all the packages that are part of an expedition.
