Shipping With BR

Calculating Volume Metric Weight


Volumetric weight is the ‘volume’ a package occupies (example; the physical size of a package)
Calculating Volumetric Weight Volumetric weight is calculated by the Length x Height x Width of a package and dividing the result with a volumetric factor.
To determine a package’s volumetric weight in kg, using measurements in centimeters. Length x Height x Width / 5000

Please note that in some cases, the shipping weight indicated on your merchant order form confirmation is based on ground shipping guidelines and does not correspond to international shipping criteria.




Are there any online stores that i can't order from ?


Bridgerunner allows you to shop and ship from any source online store / online merchant in those countries that we operates. For now its only in Malaysia. Except for a handful of merchants that practice brand owner rights.




Volumetric Vs Actual Weight


Q: What is volumetric weight?
A: Volumetric weight is the ‘volume’ a package occupies (example; the physical size of a package)

Q: What is actual weight?
A: Actual physical weight of a package is its actual weight measured in kilograms.In international shipping, how much space a package occupies (volumetric weight) in a cargo hold is as important as how much it weights (actual weight). Large packages, even if they are light, take up more space in an aircraft/land transport. This is why shipping companies take the volumetric weight into consideration.

If the volumetric weight exceeds the actual weight, you will be charged the volumetric weight.
