You may always encounter the word "Oversize" on the CJ platform and feel puzzled about this type of product and the high shipping fee it costs. The article will make everything clear regarding this type of product.

The key points are listed as follows:

1. The concept of the oversized product;

2. Parameter differences among various shipping methods;

3. Oversized price.

 

1. What is an oversized product?

Oversized products, also named light goods or measurement cargo, refer to large but lightweight packages. Then it comes to a question: what is the standard of large size and lightweight? Here involves two elements -- actual weight and volumetric weight.

Actual weight is what the figure is shown on a scale.

Basically, volumetric weight (KG) is generated by the formula: length* width* height (centimeter) / 6000.

Note: Volumetric weight (Pounds) is generated by the formula length* width* height (inches) / 166.

Here is a picture for you to understand. 

 

If the volumetric weight of the item is heavier than the actual weight, then it belongs to the oversized product. If not, then it is a regular product (see Table 1).

Table 1: 

Volumetric weight > Actual weigh  Oversized Products
 Volumetric weight < Actual weigh  Regular Products

 

Here is an example for you to understand.

An item 

     Length: 60cm

     Width: 60cm

     Height: 30cm

     Actual Weight: 0.6kg

According to the formula: length* width* height (centimeter) / 6000, the volumetric weight is 60cm * 60cm * 30cm / 6000 = 18kg > 0.6kg (Actual Weight).

Then the item belongs to the oversized product. 

 

2. Parameter differences among various shipping methods;

When it comes to specific shipping, however, the parameter, or the number 6,000, to calculate the volumetric weight varies. Some shipping methods apply the parameter 8,000 or 5,000 to get the volumetric weight. Some do not distinguish oversized products from other types. For more details, please look at Table 2.

3. Oversized price

If you have an oversized package, then you may need to pay the oversized price. It means that the shipping fee is generated according to the volumetric weight instead of the actual weight.
