The price to send a parcel is based on the greater of the actual weight and cubic weight. It's important you calculate this to ensure your parcel is labelled correctly; otherwise you risk it being returned to you.

**How do I calculate cubic weight?**

You’ll need to know your parcel’s actual weight and its cubic weight, as the delivery rate is calculated on whichever is greater.

The cubic conversion rate is 250kg per cubic metre.

**Cubic weight = H x W x L x 250**

- Convert measurements to metres.
- Multiply the height x width x length x cubic conversion (250) to get the cubic weight.

**Example: **(H) 0.8m x (W) 0.5m x (L) 0.15m x 250 = 15kg

- So, if the actual weight of this parcel was 5kg and the cubic weight was 15kg, the greater weight of 15kg is used to calculate the label price.
