Air transport from China to UK

Air Freight Forwarding from China to the UK

All movement of the goods will be handled by a third-party freight forwarder like VIPUTRANS.The benefits of using a China freight forwarder are that you can request that your air cargo be shipped from your factory door directly to your final destination.Likewise, you’ll typically receive a more affordable shipping quote from a freight forwarder than your supplier or a 3rd party logistics company, due to the freight forwarders’ high-volume agreements with air carriers.


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  

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

Sea shipping from China to UK

FCL, or full container load, means your goods fill an entire container, either 20’ or 40’ long. If you are shipping at a high volume, you’ll save time and money by shipping FCL. Pricing for FCL is done as a flat rate, regardless of whether or not your container is completely full.

LCL, or less than a container load, means your goods do not fill an entire container, and will be shipped along with other boxes or pallets. Note that when you ship LCL, your goods will need to be consolidated at the origin port and deconsolidated at the destination port.
