Shipping Costs from China to UK
As a professional and experienced freight company in China, Forest Shipping provides a wide range of shipping services for you to choose, like Air Express Courier Shipping, Air Freight, Sea FCL and LCL. But how are those shipping methods charged from China to UK?
Air Express Shipping Weight.
We look at both volume and weight of the packages. The actual chargeable weight is the heavier of actual weight and volumetric weight. The volumetric weight is based on the volume of the goods calculated as 1 cubic meter = 200 kilograms. For example, a box of goods has the actual weight of 10kg. The carton size of this cargo is 65 x 65 x 50cm, then the volumetric weight of this cargo is 0.211 (the volume of the cargo in cubic meters) * 200 = 42.25KGS. The chargeable weight, in this example of cargo, would be the volumetric weight.
Air Freight Shipping Rates
Shipping rates for air freight are determined by a few key factors. The first is weight limits. Actual chargeable weight is heavier between actual weight and volumetric weight. The volumetric weight depends on the volume of the merchandise computed as 1 cubic meter = 167 kilograms.
If we take an example of a box of goods with an actual weight of 10KGS and the carton size is 65 x 65 x 50cm, then the volume weight of this cargo is 0.211cbm (the volume of the container cargo) x 167 = 35.237KGS. The chargeable weight of this set of cargo would be charged by volumetric weight. Air Freight is far more suitable for those looking to ship by large volume cargo.
Sea FCL and LCL
Full container load implies that you must use the entire space encapsulated in the container. However, in reality, you are renting the full space inside the container. This means you do not need to fear potential damage from another cargo potentially bumping into or contaminating your own. Our FCL services offer you peace of mind that others may not be able to offer. LCL is the most cost-efficient of the two options. Our LCL services are based on the volume of the shipment.
