Air Freight cost is determined by Chargeable Weight. The Chargeable Weight of an airfreight shipment is determined by the actual gross weight or the volumetric weight, whichever is greater.
Chargeable Weight Formula: (Length (cm) X Width (CM) X Height (cm))/600= Volumetric Weight in KG.
For example: you packed your items into a box and the measurements of it as follows:-
Length: 100 cm
Width: 100 cm
Height: 100 cm
And the actual gross weight of your packed items after weighing them on the scale after packing was: 110 KGThen the volumetric weight is: (100 cm X 100 cm X 100 cm)/ 6000 =
= 1000000/ 6000
= 166.7 kg
So your air freight shipment weight is 166.7 kg since the volumetric weight is higher than the gross weight.
