Cost Of Air Freight

Understanding Volumetric Weight Calculation for Air Freight
In air freight, charges are based on the actual weight of the goods or the volumetric weight, whichever is greater. This means that even if a ton of feathers weighs the same as a ton of bricks, the feathers would occupy more space in the cargo hold and be charged based on their volumetric weight. Calculating the volumetric weight of your shipment is simple:

Volumetric Weight Formula: Length x Width x Height x 200
By applying the above formula, you can determine the volumetric weight of your cargo. The charges will be calculated based on whichever weight is greater—either the volumetric weight or the actual weight of the goods.

Preparing Air Freight

With CargoMaster, fast and secure air freight is ensured.
To ensure a smooth and secure travel with CargoMaster, your air freight must be properly prepared before being submitted for transportation. It is essential to identify the sort of products you are transporting in order to assist efficient handling and safeguard your cargo from harm. To achieve maximum effectiveness and safeguard the integrity of your air cargo, keep the following recommendations in mind:

Understanding of Air Freight Risks

  • Avoid using shoddy packaging, which could cause shifting and punctures.
  • Your cargo is more subject to piercings and other types of damage with inadequate packaging.
  • Prevent compression forces from occurring during stacking, shocks, vibrations, or tie-down techniques.
  • When being handled, drops and impacts must be withstood by proper packaging.

Recommendations for Air Freight Shipment Packaging

  • Fiberboard Corrugated Boxes
  • To prevent compression towards the edges, use sturdy boxes.
  • Consider the possibility of strength deterioration with time, especially in situations with high humidity.
  • Instead of employing multi-use containers, think about using single-use ones instead.

Air freight packaging made of wood

  • Include diagonal braces and connecting corners to increase strength.
  • To maintain resistance, avoid fastening wood along the end grain.
  • Limit knots to no more than 30% of the surface area, and avoid putting fasteners inside knots.

Palletised Air Freight

  • Pick pallets that won’t cause cargo to hang over.
  • Pallets that are broken or have fasteners sticking out should not be used.
  • Make sure that the floor-bearing load capability of the pallets is enough.

When using CargoMaster’s air freight services, you can ensure the safety and security of your international shipments by following these rules and using the appropriate cushioning procedures.

The international community has established a classification system for easy identification of dangerous goods. These goods fall into nine primary classes, and some classes are further divided to address specific risks. Each class/division has a corresponding label that accurately represents the nature of the hazard. These labels must be attached to the package during transport and remain intact throughout the journey. Take a look at the illustrated examples below to understand how these labels effectively communicate the potential dangers.

Under regulations, labels must be clearly visible on the outside of the package and must stay on the package while in transit.

You can often find labels printed on most inner packages such as:

  • aerosol cans
  • bottles of bleach
  • containers of thinners
  • tins of paint
  • many other products which are available at supermarkets and hardware stores.

Below are the 9 hazard labels for the 9 classes of dangerous goods.
