Weight/Volume ratio

How is air freight calculated?

Prices (air freight rates) are always quoted per kg/6 dm3. This can also be called the volume ratio 1 : 6 or 1 m3 = 167 kg. That means you either pay for the weight or the space necessary for the transport of your consignment.

The calcuation is always based on the following equation regardless of whether you are paying for the weight or the space:

Length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm) / 6000 (equals the volume weight in kg)

Type of transport volume calculation

Air freight 1 m3 =     167 kg
Truck 1 m3 =     333 kg
Sea freight 1 m3 =  1,000 kg
