It’s worth noting that the size and weight of your products may affect the delivery partner you choose, either due to extra costs for delivering larger items or because some courier services do not have the means to carry big and heavy products.
Courier services use volumetric weight to measure your items, which helps them to determine how large and heavy your products are. This is taken as the actual weight of the item and will impact whether or not they are able to ship and deliver your products.
Most delivery companies use the following sum to work out the weight of your items:
(Length x width x depth) ÷ 6,000*=weight of your products
*Delivery company DHL divides items by 5,000.
A quick and simple way to work out the weight of your items is to find your products listed on digital marketplaces. Generally speaking, you will be able to see a weight listed in the product details on platforms such as Amazon or eBay.
