If time is of the essence, then air freight is the fastest option for your shipment. But note that it's also the most expensive for shipping costs.
Actual and volumetric weight
The cost of air freight from China is calculated by first determining the actual and volumetric weight of the goods. The airline will take the greater of the two weights to calculate the billable weight.
Actual weight is calculated in the same way as air express. Actual weight, also known as gross weight, is the total weight of the cargo.
Volume and weight
1)LWH/6000: Volumetric weight formula:Multiply the first by the carton size and divide by 6,000
2)CBM*167: Volumetric weight formula:Another way to calculate is to multiply the total cubic volume by 167
Ocean freight involves container transportation, and importers can choose to import in containers leased (FCL) or shared container space (LCL) with others.
Here are a few things to consider when you're choosing between LCL and FCL:
l Do you agree that your shipment will share a container with other shipments from other companies?
l If your order is more than 6 pallets, you should compare the price of FCL and LCL as it may be more cost effective to get a full container even if it cannot be fully filled.
l FCL shipping time will be a bit faster.
l LCL is suitable for small quantities of goods and when air freight is too expensive.
