Air rates

Air shipping rates - table of ratesIt is an international air freight agreement to charge on either the actual gross weight or on the volume weight (Chargeable/volumetric weight), whichever is greater because the volume or weight that can be loaded into an aircraft is limited. For example 200kg of feathers would take up a lot of space on a cargo plain , but due to their light weight the air freight forwarder would earn very little money if charged solely on the actual weight.

To assess the volume weight you have to multiply the length, width and height in centimetres and divide by 6000 to obtain the chargeable weight in kilograms.
