Once you get the billable weight of your Amazon parcel, you can easily calculate the costs to ship it to your customers and factor in your margins.
As a rule of thumb, the bigger an item, the more space it will occupy in the aircraft/shipping container and hence, the more it will cost to ship it across. Even if the item is light but is occupying a lot of space, its price will be based on the size rather than weight because it is a less efficient use of space. In other words, it is unprofitable for freight transport companies to calculate shipping costs for low-density products based on the weight since the area they take up is more in proportion to their actual mass.
Hence, the volumetric weight is calculated by multiplying the length, breadth, and height of the product, and dividing it by the volumetric factor. This volumetric factor depends on the units of measurement, and to a certain extent, the carrier used to ship the products.
length x height x width
Once the volumetric weight is ascertained, it is compared with the actual weight of the shipment. The greater of the two is used to calculate shipping fees.
If your Amazon business is doing very well and is serving to customers from across the world, you will need to work on your shipping plans such that the goods are transported on time, without making a hole in your pockets. You need to calculate the Amazon shipping weight of your parcel and see if it is greater or smaller than the actual weight. If it’s greater, you may want to look into reducing the size of your parcel.
The best way to reduce the shipping weight or volumetric weight of your Amazon parcel is by using a box whose size is proportional to the contents. Many people make the mistake of using oversized boxes to ship items that are rather small in size. This not only leads to wastage but also results in a substantial increase in shipping prices.,Therefore, the next time you ship your goods to your Amazon customers, be mindful of using packaging that is in line with the size of your items. At the same time, you must make sure not to overstuff the parcel as it can lead to damage during transit.
