The international air freight price mainly consists of Airfreight freight, Fuel surcharge, security inspection fee, airport operation fee, air master bill, and other expenses. So how is the international air freight price calculated? Let's share with you how to calculate the air freight price!
There are generally two types of air freight costs, one is to take the freight of the airline, and the other is to take the international air express. Their calculation methods are different.
The freight of the airline is mainly composed of two parts: freight and miscellaneous charges. The unit price is calculated according to the weight class, generally, there are 5 classes: +45KG, +100KG (goods above 100KG) +300KG, +500KG, and +1000KG. Generally, if there is no corresponding level of freight, the freight will be calculated according to the TACT price (air freight rate). The billable weight of the goods is also an important place. The weight of the goods is divided into two aspects: volume weight and gross weight. When the volumetric weight is greater than the gross weight, the volumetric weight is the billable weight of the goods, and when the volumetric weight is less than the gross weight, the actual gross weight is the billable weight.
Miscellaneous fees include many aspects, generally including storage fees, fuel surcharges, etc. The fuel surcharge is a product of specific circumstances, and the quotations of general airlines have included this part of the cost in the freight. Another miscellaneous fee is the cost of customs declaration. According to the actual situation of the airline and the goods, the cost of customs declaration may also be omitted.
The gross weight of the goods is in kilograms, and the minimum unit of billable weight is 0.5 kilograms or 1 kilogram (determined by each airline). *The small unit is 0.5 kg. When the weight is less than 0.5 kg, it will be calculated as 0.5 kg; if it exceeds 0.5 kg and less than 1 kg, it will be calculated as 1 kg. *When the smallest unit is 1kg, if it is less than 1kg, it will be calculated as 1kg.
If the gross weight of the goods is in pounds, when the goods are less than one pound, it will be calculated as one pound.
Regardless of the geometric shape of the goods, measure the *length, *width, and *height parts of the goods, in centimeters, meters or inches Volume weight (kg) = length (cm) × width (cm) × height (cm) ÷ 6000 = Cargo volume (cubic meters) × 167kg = Cargo volume (cubic inches) ÷ 366 Volume weight (lbs) = Cargo volume (cubic inches) ÷ 166
(1) The air freight billable weight is generally said to be the larger weight between the actual weight (gross weight) and the volume weight.
(2) The billing weight of domestic air freight forwarders is based on /6000 or x167;
(3), the billing weight of international express is /5000;
In the case of centralized consignment, there may be multiple pieces of goods under the same waybill, including light goods and heavy goods. At this time, the billable weight of the batch of goods is the final billable weight, whichever is larger between the actual weight and the volumetric weight.
First, weigh the actual weight, then calculate the volumetric weight, and finally, compare the larger weight to the billable weight of the batch of goods.
