All means of freight transportation are ruled by weight and cubic measurement factors, where the carrier will charge based on Actual Weight or Volumetric, whichever is deemed to be the greater.

Air Freight Shipments have an IATA / Airline Cubic Allowance Factor of 1 Kilo = 6,000 Cubic Centimetres.

The illustration below shows you how to calculate the Volumetric Chargeable Weight:

The illustration below shows you how to calculate the Volumetric Chargeable Weight:

The carton measures 30 × 45 × 65cms, which is 87750 cubic centimetres. Divide this figure by the IATA/Airline Cubic Allowance Factor of 6000 cubic centimetres = 14.625 Kilos.

Here, the Air Freight charge will be calculated on 15 kilos volumetric, rather than the 14 kilos actual weight.
