English term or phrase: weighted volume

Il s'agit d'un document sur les techniques de négociation et dans un tableau il y a ce terme : " 50% distribution (70% weighted volume)" sans aucun autre contexte.
Est-ce que "volume pondéré" pourrait convenir? Je ne suis pas certaine du sens.

Merci pour votre aide!

  -> Merci, Cyril ! J'aurais sans doute dû suggérer une réponse, mais je ne voyais absolument pas le rapport avec des "techniques de négociation"... :-/
