How to calculate the DirectShip fee in UAE

This article provides a clear guide on calculating the DirectShip fee for Fulfilled By Partner (FBP) shipments in the UAE, detailing the process and the relevant fees based on shipment size and weight.

Understanding the DirectShip Fee 

The DirectShip Fee, charged upon shipping an order, is based on the higher of the shipment's physical or volumetric weight. Note that this fee is non-refundable, except in cases like customer unresponsiveness leading to undelivered shipments.

Calculating the DirectShip Fee

Step1: Classification and Weight Calculation 

To calculate the fee:

Step1: Select your shipment’s classification (standard or oversize) based on its dimensions.

Step 2: Calculate both the shipping weight (physical weight + packaging weight) and volumetric weight (Length x Breadth x Height / 5000), rounding up to the nearest 50g.

Step 3: Use the higher of these two weights as the base for your fee calculation.

Step 4: Ensure the weight doesn’t exceed the maximum limit for its classification.

DirectShip Fee Calculation Example 

Dimensions: 17.4 x 8.81 x 2.8 cm

Shipment's physical weight: 0.32 kg

Based on the dimensions, this is a standard parcel which has 0.10 kg of packaging weight. The corresponding shipping weight is:

Shipping Weight = Shipment's physical weight + Packaging Weight = (0.32+0.10) kg = 0.42 kg (approximately 0.5 kg)

Volumetric Weight: Length*Breadth*Height/5000 = 17.4*8.81*2.8/5000= 0.086 kg.

Since shipping weight is higher we take that as the base.

Therefore, this is under the 500 g maximum shipping weight for standard parcel.
