Useful information: Chargeable weight calculations

Chargeable weight calculations

Chargeable weight for different modes of transportation can be

calculated as follows:

Land Transport

1 cbm = 333 kg

1 loading metre = 1850 kg

1 EUR PLL = 740 kg

1 EUR PLL = 0,4 loading metre

1 FIN PLL = 1000 kg

1 FIN PLL = 0,5 loading metre

Air Freight

1 cbm = ~167 kg

The chargeable weight of a cargo intended for air shipment is the actual gross weight (gw) or the volume weight (vw), whichever is greater. The vw is calculated based on a cargo’s size, measurement or dimensions, and with the use of the following formula: Using the Metric System: L x W x H in centimetres (cm.) / 6,000 = vw (in kgs)

Sea Freight (LCL)

1 cbm = 1000 kg

The chargeable weight of a cargo intended for sea shipment is the actual gross

weight (gw) or the volume weight (vw), whichever is greater.
