DIM WEIGHT CALCULATOR

Dimensional weight – also known as “DIM” – is used because the space a package takes up on an aircraft may lead to a higher cost than its actual weight. We apply DIM to our shipments as follows:

  • Domestic Air: 194 cubic inches per pound
  • Domestic Service Requiring a Cargo Freighter: 166 cubic inches per pound
  • International Air: 166 cubic inches per pound
  • Economy / Local Courier: 200 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.

Dim Weight: 0 LBS | 0 KGS

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):

  • Domestic Air: L x W x H (in inches) ÷ 194 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight
    • Example: 32” x 26” x 20” (16,640 cubic inches) ÷ 194 cubic inches = 86 lbs (rounded up)
  • Domestic Service Requiring a Cargo Freighter: L x W x H (in inches) ÷ 166 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight
    • Example: 32” x 26” x 20” (16,640 cubic inches) ÷ 166 cubic inches = 101 lbs (rounded up)
  • International Air: L x W x H (in inches) ÷ 166 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight
    • Example: 32” x 26” x 20” (16,640 cubic inches) ÷ 166 cubic inches = 101 lbs (rounded up)
  • Economy / Local Courier: L x W x H (in inches) ÷ 200 cubic inches per pound = Dimensional Weight
    • Example: 32” x 26” x 20” (16,640 cubic inches) ÷ 200 cubic inches = 67 lbs (rounded up)

Note: The final, and definitive, DIM calculation is performed by an Aeronet Worldwide associate upon receipt of the shipment, and is communicated the shipper.

L.T.L. FREIGHT CLASS CALCULATOR

Freight Class is a standardized classification system for cargo transported by means of less-than-truckload shipments (also known as “LTL”).

Density: 0 (cuft)
Freight Class: 0
