If you are a new customer and you do not have an account number please call your nearest Direct Freight Express office.
Simply measure the height, length and width of the item.
E.g. If a parcel is 0.65m long x 0.25m wide x 0.35m high, its cubic dimension is 0.65 x 0.25 x 0.35 = 0.57.
Chargeable kilograms is the unit by which the shipment is charged and it will be the greater of either the actual kilograms or the cubic kilograms.
E.g. The above example the total cubic was 0.057. If we multiply 0.057 by 250 (the cubic factor) the resultant cubic weight is 15kg. So if the parcels actual weight was less than 15kg, its chargeable kilograms will be 15. If the parcel actual weight was more, then chargeable kgs would be the same as its actual kgs.Back to top
