How to calculate the Dimensional Weight of your cargo piece(s):
STEP 1. Measure the length, height and width of your cargo item in inches with a tape measure. Include any handles or wheels in your measurements.
STEP 2. Multiply the three measurements together then divide the total by 166. Always round up to the next whole number to find the Total Dimensional Weight in lbs.
EXAMPLE: Length = 15 inches, Width = 20 inches, Height = 12 inches
Formula for Total Dimensional Weight = L x W x H / 166
Total Dimensional Weight = 15 x 20 x 12 / 166
Total Dimensional Weight = 21.69 (round up to the next whole number)
Total Dimensional Weight = 22 lbs
Actual Weight = 12 lbs, Dimensional Weight = 5 lbs
Actual Weight is used because it is greater.
(First 11 lbs @ WST $40.00) + (1 lb @ WST $1.50 per lb) = WST $40.00 + WST $1.50
The Total Cargo cost is WST $41.50
Actual Weight = 9 lbs, Dimensional Weight = 20 lbs
Dimensional Weight is used because it is greater.
(First 11 lbs @ WST $40.00) + (9 lbs at WST $1.50 per lb) = WST $40.00 + WST $13.50
The Total Cargo cost is WST $53.50
