Calculating girth for international parcel:
The formula for working out the girth of your overseas parcel is:
(Width + height) x 2 = girth.
When measuring dimensions, the longest side of the parcel is considered the length. Ie, the two shortest sides are used to calculate girth.
For example: a parcel with dimensions 10cm, 105cm and 20cm
= (10cm + 20cm) x 2
= 30cm x 2
= 60cm girth. Within girth limit
Or for a parcel with dimensions 40cm, 35cm and 100cm
= (40cm + 35cm) x 2
= 75cm x 2
= 150cm girth. Exceeds girth limit
