Air freight from China to France

If you want to choose a faster way, here we have recommendations for you: Air Freight.

There are 2 different ways of air freight as well, they vary in some ways:

In price and speed, as well as service:

· Traditional Airfreight: for instance, Air Canada, Air China, Air France

· Express Airfreight: for example, UPS, DHL, TNT, FedEx ...

Tips: Air freight will be the best option if  

· Your cargo is less than 2 m³

· If you have a deadline requirement

The airlines specify that when the cargo is small and heavy, it is calculated by actual weight; when it is large and heavy, it is calculated by volume. In centralized consignments, a shipment consists of several different pieces of cargo, both light, and heavy blister cargo.

Calculation: Volumetric weight = (length cm * width cm * height cm) / 6000 or 1CBM*167KG

The chargeable weight is calculated using the total gross weight or total volume weight of the whole batch of goods, according to the higher of the two.
