Volumetric Weight / Actual Weight
To give you an exact estimate, it is necessary to calculate the ratio real weight / volumetric weight, and to take into account the greater weight.
The calculation of the taxable weight is calculated on the basis of the volumetric weight and the actual weight. The most important weight will be taken into account for the estimate. For information, here is the basis of calculation:
SIAM Remark: Volumetric weight (average freight) = Volume (CBM) x 167
