What is girth?

The ‘length’ of a parcel is the measurement of its longest side.

The ‘girth’ of a parcel can be found by adding together the lengths of the two remaining dimensions of the parcel - the width and the height - and doubling the total.

Therfore the calculation for international shipments is Length + 2(Width + Height).
