Dimensional Weight Calculations
Dimensional weight is used because the space a package takes on an aircraft may cost more than the actual weight of the package. Dimensional weight, also known as “DIM” weight applies to Aeronet shipments as follows. The final and definitive DIM calculation is performed by Aeronet personnel upon receipt of the shipment and is confirmed to the shipper.

Domestic Air – 194 cubic inches per pound
Any Domestic Service that requires a cargo freighter – 166 cubic inches per pound
International Air – 166 cubic inches per pound
Economy/Local Courier – 250 cubic inches per pound

Dimensional weight should be calculated on every shipment and compared to its actual weight, then use the greater of the two to determine the shipping cost.

Shipment dimensional weights are calculated based on different factors using the formulas below. DIM weights are always expressed in pounds and are rounded up to the nearest pound.

For Domestic Air Shipments: L x W x H (in inches) / 194 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight in pounds

Example: 32”x26”x20”= 16,640 cubic inches/194 cubic inches = 86 lbs

Any Domestic Service that requires a cargo freighter:
L x W x H (in inches) / 166 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight in pounds

Example: 32”x26”x20”= 16,640 cubic inches/166 cubic inches = 101 lbs

For International Air Shipments:
L x W x H (in inches) / 166 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight in pounds

Example: 32”x26”x20”= 16,640 cubic inches/166 cubic inches = 101 lbs

For Economy and/or Local Courier Shipments:
L x W x H (in inches) / 250 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight in pounds

Example: 32”x26”x20”= 16,640 cubic inches/250 cubic inches = 67 lbs
