Shipping is always charged at the higher of actual weight or volumetric weight. Umbrellas usually are charged at its volumetric weight due to its dimensions.

The calculation of volumetric weight for a shipment via air is:

**(Length x Breadth x Height)/5000**, if the LBH is in **centimeters**.

**(Length x Breadth x Height)/305** if the LBH is in **inches**.

The calculation of volumetric weight for a shipment via surface within India is:

**((Length x Breadth x Height)/27000) * CFT** if the LBH is in **centimeters**.

**((Length x Breadth x Height)/1728) * CFT **if the LBH is in **inches**.

You can check the CFT in the Vamaship contract once you sign up.
