WEIGHT and VOLUME of your CARGO
When executing air forwarding, weight is one of the most important characteristics of cargo. It differs as:
- Physical weight (a result of weighing),
- Weight by volume (should be defined, please see below),
- Chargeable weight (the weight, which is used for the calculation of airfreight fee).
Weight by volume (in kilograms) is defined as a volume of cargo (height x width x length) in cub.meters, devided into 6000, after that the result should be rounded to one decimal place.
After that, the weight by volume should be compared with the physical weight. The larger one is supposed to be a chargeable weight.
