Actual weight = the physical weight of the shipment

Chargeable weight (or volume weight) = the calculated shipment weight based on its dimensions (length x width x height in cubic measurement or LDM)
This weight determines the necessary space required inside the lorry. The transport costs of an order are calculated on this basis.

Depending on the weight or size of the shipment, the actual or chargeable weight is used to calculate the transport costs.
