All shipments are monitored while in the air and on the ground to ensure on-time delivery.
Actual vs. Dimensional Weight
Airlines calculate shipping costs by dimensional, or chargeable, weight because low-density packages are unprofitable for air cargo carriers. Dimensional weight is calculated as length x width x height / dimensional factor, where the dimensional factor is typically 166 cubic inches per pound. If a shipment’s dimensional weight is greater than its gross weight, then the actual weight is not relevant and the freight carrier will charge based on dimensional weight.
