How to calculate the Dimensional Weight of your cargo piece(s):

Bag Diagram

 

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

                  

Example of price calculation over 11 lbs:

SAMOA Cargo Example 1 (Samoa - American Samoa):

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

 

TONGA Cargo Example 2 (Tongatapu - Samoa/American Samoa) :

Actual Weight = 100 lbs, Dimensional Weight = 20 lbs

Actual Weight is used because it is greater. 

(First 85 lbs @ USD $150.00) + (15 lbs at USD $1.80 per lb) = USD $150.00 + USD $27.00

The Total Cargo cost is USD $177.00
