What is Volumetric Weight (i.e. for patient monitor)?

Volumetric weight, also known as Dimensional weight is used by postal companies and other freight industries and courier services around the world to invoice for the actual space that a parcel, package or pallet takes up in a vehicle or storage area. A vehicle can quickly become full of bulky, lightweight articles long before it reaches its capacity in weight which makes for inefficient use of space.


All of our products including ultrasound scanner, patient monitor, vital signs monitor, pulse oximeter are taken as lightweight but larger-sized package products. Therefore, volumetric weight (usually higher than actual gross weight) is used for freight cost calculation by speed courier services or air logistics.
