How Does it Work

How we calculate your air freight costs

We determine shipping costs based on the higher of the actual or volumetric weight of the package. Here’s an example to illustrate the calculation:

Actual Weight
Package’s actual weight is 15 Kg
Volumetric Weight Calculation
Package dimensions (Length x Width x Height):
35cm x 50cm x 30cm
Volumetric Weight = (35 x 50 x 30) / 6000 = 8.75 Kg.
Comparison
Actual Weight = 15 Kg
Volumetric Weight = 8.75 Kg
Determination of Shipping Cost
As the actual weight (15 Kg) is higher than the volumetric weight (8.75 Kg), we use the actual weight for cost calculation.
Cost Calculation
Cost of shipping = Actual Weight x Cost per Kg
Cost of shipping = 15 Kg x $15/Kg = $225
