How to calculate the girth of the parcel
The girth is the total measurement of all the sides of your parcel. First grab a measuring tape and measure the length, width and height of your parcel and follow the formula below:
Max. Girth – 300 cm ( 1 length + [2 x width] + [2 x height])
We will use the following measurements to explain how to work out the girth:
Length 100 cm, width 50 cm and height 50 cm. To work out the girth of a parcel you simply take the longest dimensions (in this case it is the lenght (100 cm) and then you take two smallest dimensions ( in this case width 50 cm and height 50cm), and you multiply them by two ( you receive result of width 100 cm and height 100 cm). In the next step you add these three figures together. This gives you 300 cm. This is the girth of your parcel. To use this formula, it is important you always measure your parcel in centimeters (cm).
Length 40 cm, width 50 cm and height 80 cm. To work out the girth of a parcel you simply take the longest dimensions (in this case it is the height (80 cm) and then you take two smallest dimensions ( in this case lenght 40 cm and width 50cm), and you multiply them by two ( you receive result of width 80 cm and height 100 cm). In the next step you add these three figures together. This gives you 260 cm. This is the girth of your parcel. To use this formula, it is important you always measure your parcel in centimeters (cm).
