# Shipping Calculator International

May 26, 2016

Calculate your estimated international shipping rate in a few quick steps! Determine the actual weight, dimensional weight and estimate the billable weight of your item(s).

### Duty Calculator

Below is our Shipping Rate Calculator. Use the Customs Duty Calculator to determine import duties & taxes in your country.

A customs duty is an indirect tax levied on the import or export of goods in international trade.

### Determine Dimensional Weight

Dimensional weight reflects package density, which is the amount of the space a package occupies in relation to its actual weight. Dimensional weight may apply to all international package services.

Determine the package dimensions in inches. For each dimension, measure at the longest point, rounding each measurement to the nearest whole number (for example, 1.00 to 1.49 will be considered 1, and 1.50 to 1.99 will be considered 2). Measure the length, width and height of the package at its extreme points. If the package has a bulge or is irregularly shaped, include the bulge or irregular aspects of the package. Multiply the package length by the width by the height. The result is the cubic size in inches.When you have the cubic size in inches, divide it by 139(international standard) to determine the dimensional weight.

Dimensional Weight= Cubic Size(L X W X H)/139.

### Determine Billable Weight

Remember, international shipping rates are based on billable weight. Billable weight compares a package’s actual weight to its dimensional weight. The greater of the two is the billable weight and should be used to calculate the rate.
