Shipping fees calculations


Regarding all the sea shipments, the rate will be calculated on the highest measurement considering  1CBM = 1,000 Kgs (1 tons)

In order to calculate the chargeable weight:

- Number of CBM * 167 KGS

- (L*H*W)/ 6,000

Example 1:

Volume: 3 CBM

Weight: 5 tons

Ocean freight will be based on 5 and not 3

Example 2:

Volume: 3 CBM

Weight: 2 tons

Ocean freight will be based on 3 instead of 2
