The globalization of trade has continued to develop the logistics industry. This industry has been growing exponentially over the last 2 years, from 22 billion packages shipped worldwide in 2019 to over 120 billion in 2021. Optimizing supply chain processes is becoming essential.
Although we used to consider the weight as the main criterion for package shipping, knowing precisely the volume of the package we want to ship is now just as important. In the age of globalization and the increasing importance of the transportation industry, the criterion is thus no longer the weight alone: volumetric weight is becoming the reference. It’s important for logistics managers to know the volumetric weight in order to avoid additional costs in the transportation of goods, regardless of the modes of transport used. It includes transportation services that have limited space.
