When air freighting cargo, it is important to note that the Air Freight rate is calculated per Kilogram and on a chargeable weight, which is not necessarily the actual weight of the cargo. The chargeable weight is whichever is the greater of the volumetric weight or the actual weight.

For example, you have an air freight shipment with the following details:

1 pallet @ 120 x 120 x 120 cm @ 90 Kgs

The Volumetric Weight is 1 pallet x (120 x 120 x 120 cm / 6000*) = 288 Kgs

The Actual Weight is 1 pallet x 90 Kgs  = 90 Kgs

In this instance the chargeable weight is 288 Kgs

*Please note air freight conversion for Volumetric Weight is 6000 cubic centimetres per Kg.
