Information about; volumetric weight, actual weight, dead weight and chargeable weight:

Before you call CargoMaster for a quote you need to know the dimensions and the weight of the intended consignment. When you send air freight it will be charged at the actual weight (dead weight, as they say) or the volumetric weight whichever is greater. The greater number will then be called the “chargeable weight” which will almost always be different from the “actual weight”. If you can imagine the size of a ton of feathers takes up and compared with a ton of bricks, were the bricks will take much less area and will likely be charged at the “actual weight”, whereas feathers would likely be charged at the “volumetric weight”. So in summary a consignment may not be heavy, but it may take up alot of space on the aircraft comparitive to its weight in such a case the consignment is likely chargeable at its volumetric weight.

How to calculate the chargeable weight of your consignment:

Its very easy to work out the volumetric weight of a consignment all you need to do is a simple calculation as follows:

LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT= TOTAL X 200= The volumetric weight of your shipment.

Another thing to remember is to try to keep your consignment height under 1.5m so as to ensure it will fit into the cargo hold door. If your consignment consists of a pallet of boxes, its a good idea to address and number each box. Remember, leaking or dirty freight could (it is likely) be rejected so make sure your cargo is clean and ensure your shipment is well packeged for air transportation.
