Air Shipping Volume weight calculation

The formula for Volume Weight in Kg. = (L x W x H) / 6000 (cm) or 366 (inches).
The Chargeable weight is based on either the volume weight or the actual weight whichever is the greater.

Example: 

Dimensions in inches
A shipment weighs 100.00 kg. (Actual Weight)
It measures 8 Boxes 24 in x 18 in x 18 in
(24 x 18 x 18) x 8 = 62,208.00
62,208.00/366 = 170.00 kg. (Volume Weight)
Chargeable weight = 170.00 kg. 

Dimensions in Centimetres
A shipment weighs 100.00 kg. (Actual Weight)
It measures 8 Boxes 24 cm x 18 cm x 18 cm
(45 x 30 x 25) x 8 = 270,000.00
270,000.00/6000 = 45.00 kg. (Volume Weight)
Chargeable weight = 100.00 kg.
