All orders are determined by their volumetric weight over their physical weight. Even though a product may weigh very little, it's volumetric weight is likely to be greater. For example, one of our Father Rabbit wooden drying racks weighs approximately 3kg but due to it's size, it's volumetric weight is just over 10kg.
