How to determine dimensional weight

Shipping charges will be based on the dimensional weight of the shipment when
the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight.
Dimensional weight is determined by using Pos Malaysia Berhad volumetric standard.

  • Step 1:
    Calculate cubic size :
    Multiply the length by the width and by the height (each rounded up to the nearest
    whole centimetre) of each package
  • Step 2:
    Determine the dimensional weight :
    Divide the cubic size of the package by 6000 to determine the dimensional weight in kilograms.
    Increase fractions of a weight to the next full kilogram.
    Multiple-piece shipment dimensional weight is the sum of all dimensional weight of
    all packages within the shipment.
