 # Shipment glossary ### Volumetric Weight ( DIM) Calculation

Below are the common formulas used to calculate Dimensional Weight. Use the conversion tool below to calculate the dimensional weight of your package(s).

##### For International Air Shipments
• L x W x H (inches) / 166 = Dimensional Weight (lbs)
• L x W x H (inches) / 366 = Dimensional Weight (kg)
• L x W x H (cm) / 6000 = Dimensional Weight (kg)
• Example: 30" x 24" x 22" = 15,840 / 166 = 96 lbs. (round up to the nearest pound)
##### For Ocean Shipments
• L x W x H (in inches) / 1728 = Dimensional Weight (cubic feet)
• L x W x H (in inches) / 1728 * .028317 = Dimensional Weight (cubic meters)
• L x W x H (in cm) / 1,000,000 = Dimensional Weight (cubic meters)
• Example: 30" x 24" x 22" = 15,840 / 166 = 96 lbs. (round up to the nearest pound)
##### For Domestic Shipments
• L x W x H (inches) / 194 = Dimensional Weight (lbs)
• L x W x H (cm) / 6993 = Dimensional Weight (kg)
• Example: 30" x 24" x 22" = 15,840 / 194 = 82 lbs. (round up to the nearest pound)
