Actual weight is the weight of the actual shipment in either pounds or kilograms. Dimensional weight is the actual space the shipment occupies on an aircraft vs. weight. Dimensional weight is calculated by determining the shipment's volume in cubic inches (L x W x H = V). Divide this number by our Dim factor (Domestic and International Dims are different) and the result will be the dimensional weight of your shipment.
