It is the fastest way of cargo delivery for long distances.
Our company is effectively using air transport from China and USA to Europe and Russian Federation. Air freight operations are also essential for delivering urgent consignments from Europe and Middle East countries.
It is very important to take in account volumetric weight of cargo in air freight operations.
Coefficient for volumetric weight calculation in air freight operations is 6 cubic meters per 1 metric ton, i.e 1 m3 = 167 kg of pay load.
Calculation of Volumetric Weight
Volumetric weight calculation scheme for cargo:
Multiply lenght (L) by width (W) and by height (H), obtained volume divide by 6000, the result is volumetric weight of cargo for transportation by air. It is necessary to remove caption from the picture!
Sample of calculation: You have to transfer 6 boxes 80см*60см*40см in size, weight of each box is 20 kg. Aeroweight can be calculated by the formula: (80х60х40)х6:6000 = 192 kg. So, actual weight of 6 boxes is 120 kg, but its volumetric weight for transportation by air is 192 kg, and based on it will be calculated the air fare.
