WEIGHT OF PACKAGES:
The billable rate per package is based on actual weight and market forces. However anything over 10lbs the billable rate per package is based on the greater of the dimensional weight or actual weight of the item by the airlines. The customer can decide whether they want to ship by air or by ocean
DIMENSIONAL WEIGHT IS CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
Multiply the three (3) dimensions L x W x H (L – length in inches, W – width in inches, H – height in inches) and divide the product by 166. Round all calculations up to the nearest pound. The result of this calculation is the dimensional weight of the piece.
Your package is 24″ x 36″ x 48″. Dimensional weight is 24 x 36 x 48 = 41472 / 166 = 250 pounds
