Airfreight Cost

How are airfreight rates calculated?

Carriers calculate freight costs by either volumetric weight (also known as dimensional weight) or actual weight, depending on which is more expensive.

The accepted method of calculating the volumetric weight is to multiply an item’s volume in cubic meters by 167. The volume of 20 cartons (each weighing 8kgs) measuring 40cm x 40cm x 40cm is 1.28cbm. Multiplied by 167, you get a volumetric weight of 213kg, whereas the actual weight is 160kg. In this example, the volumetric weight would be charged.

What goods are typically shipped via airfreight?

Since air cargo rates are expensive, it’s usually limited to smaller, high-value goods or time-sensitive items, such as consumer electronics, fashion apparel, pharmaceuticals, documents, samples and other seasonal goods.
