How is international air freight billed?

Among the many modes of cargo transportation, if you want to say that the timeliness and price have advantages, then it must be air transportation. Many people do not know how to calculate the cost of international air transportation. In the air transportation business, there are two weights: billing and actual weight.


If the volume of your cargo is greater than the actual weight, it can be regarded as a bubble cargo. Let’s learn how to calculate the international air freight cost.

One is calculated according to the actual weight of the goods, and the other is calculated according to the volume of the goods.

Weigh and measure your goods first, calculate the actual weight and volume, and then calculate the cost according to the principle of taking the larger of the two. In the calculation, one cubic meter of the goods is equal to 167 kilograms, and if it is less than one kilogram, it will be rounded up to the nearest decimal.


Regarding the calculation of volumetric weight, there are two calculation formulas. Generally, the first one is used more and is more standard. Let’s take a look at which two formulas are: 1. Volumetric weight (kg) = length (CM) X Width (CM)/6000; 2. Volume weight (kg) = X167 kg.


When airlines measure the outer packaging, if the cargo has protruding parts, it will be calculated according to the length of the protruding parts, which may cause some small errors. If there is anything you do not understand, you can consult a professional freight company.
