What is NinjaVan Own Packaging?
NinjaVan Own Packaging allows sellers to ship package(s) 50 kg for weight and 100 cm for dimensions. Instead of requiring parcels to be fitted into small, medium, and large box sizes, sellers can now manage the packaging of parcels; making delivery of bulky items or items with irregular shape, easier considering the volumetric weight.
What is Volumetric Weight?
Shipping large or irregular shaped items can be influenced by the amount of space it occupies (volumetric weight) rather than the actual weight.
Volumetric weight is calculated by Length (cm) x Width (cm) x Height (cm) / 3500 = Kilograms.
Length is defined as the longest side of the package. Height is the shortest side of the package.
Actual weight and volumetric weight is considered in the actual shipping cost whichever is higher.
Actual Weight = 10 kg
Package Size (Volumetric Weight) = 30 cm (Length) x 17 cm (Width) x 9 cm (Height) / 3500 = 2 kg (rounded up)
The system will use the Actual Weight for the computation of the final shipping fee since it is the greater value.
