The cost of a consignment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on a vehicle, as opposed to the actual weight. This is called the volumetric weight.
The volumetric weight of a consignment is a calculation that reflects the density of a package. A less dense item generally occupies more volume of space, compared to its actual weight. The volumetric weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the shipment to determine which is the greater; the higher weight is used as the chargeable weight of the consignment.
