## Calculating the Volumetric Weight of a Package

From time to time its necessary to calculate the volumetric weight of a package when the space a package takes on an aircraft may cost more than the package's actual weight. This is usually the case when a very light package is shipped in a large carton for example.

Here is a calculator that will assist you with this task.
