 # Air Freight Chargeable Weight & Price Level

If the volume weight of the cargo is larger than the gross weight, it is charged by volume when use air freight.

There is a GROSS WEIGHT and CHARGEABLE WEIGHT in the air.
G/W is the actual arrival weight of your goods.
C/W is calculated in cubic/0.006. 1CBM=167KG

For example: the actual data for a ticket arrival is 10 pieces / 150KGS / 2CBM
Then then G/W is 150KGS C/W is 2/0.006 = 333.33333KGS
Under normal circumstances, there will be no decimal point for the air freight billing weight, which depends on the export destination and the airline, and also has a decimal point.
If you bubble it out, it is C/W – G/W = This number is the weight of the bubble.

Relying on the level: the general freight rate is the grade freight rate. The simple understanding is that the larger the unit price, the lower the unit price. Generally divided into M, N, Q grades.

M is MINIMAL, the lowest charge for one ticket.
N is the general price, generally refers to the price less than 45KGS, so it is also marked as -45KGS.
Q is the grade special price, generally refers to the price above 45KGS, after the quote with +45KGS, +100KGS, +300KGS…, meaning how much is above 45KGS, how much is above 100KGS, and so on.

Relying on the level is to give you the price of different grades, if you use the high price of the total price is cheap, then rely on the high level.

For example: quotation, PVG-HKG, -45KGS, RMB16.00/KG, +45KGS, RMB9.00/KG. You have a ticket size of 30KGS, which belongs to the level range of less than 45KGS, then if you use +45KGS, the total price It is 16*30=480. But in fact, if your cargo is 45KGS, the total price is only 9*45=405.00. In this case, we can calculate the billable weight (CHARGEABLE WEIGHT, C.W.) on the bill of lading as 45KGS, you only need to pay 405. This is to go up the level. Others are like this. It’s not cost-effective to rely on the level. You can know the two prices.
