Q: What is the difference between actual and volume weight?
A: UPS and FedEx calculate volume weight by multiplying the 3 dimensions of a carton and then dividing this number by 139 and rounding the result up to the nearest whole number. e.g. A carton that is 33 x 11 x 7” has a volume of 2541 divided by 139 equals 18.28 and this would be rounded up to 19lbs. Whichever of the two weights is the greater will end up being the billable weight. For up to date shipping information visit the UPS site here.
