HOW TO CALCULATE VOLUMETIC WEIGHT
Australian domestic air freight is charged at the actual weight of the goods or aletrnatively on the size whichever is greater, so for example a ton of feathers would take up more room in the cargo hold compared to a ton of bricks, it is likely the feathers would be chargeable at thier volumetric weight. To calculated the volumetric weight of your shipment all you need to do:
LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT X 200
the above calculation will give you the volumetric weight of the intended cargo, so the goods will be chargeable at whatever is greatest, volumetric or actual weight
