Volume is the measurement of how much space an object takes up based on its dimensions. This is particularly relevant to courier companies who may charge based on the volume of your parcel.
To find the volume of a box or parcel, simply enter the dimensions into our Volume Calculator below, and it will calculate the volume for you!
The quickest way to calculate the volume of a box or parcel is to use our Volume Calculator, however, if you’d like to work out the volume for yourself, here is a very simple volume formula:
Length x Width x Height
If your box is 12cm x 10cm x 10cm, your volume calculation would be 12 x 10 x 10, giving you a volume of 1,200cm³. It doesn’t matter what order you do the calculation in, the answer will be the same.
The volume of an object does not take into account the weight, so many courier companies will charge based on the volumetric weight of your parcel. Our courier quote tool automatically calculates the volumetric weight of your package to provide you with an accurate parcel delivery quote.
