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.

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
