Buy Wholesale Promotional Armani Suits from China, How to Calculate Sea Freight?
1. For LCL shipments, Measure the length, width, and height of your cargo (in inches). Calculate the volume of your cargo using the formula: Length x Width x Height = Volume (in cubic inches).
2. Create the denominator by multiplying 12 x 12 x 12. There are 12 inches in a foot: (12 x 12 x 12) = 1,728 cubic inches.
3. Divide the volume by 1,728 to get your cubic footage volume: Volume / 1,728 = cubic feet.
4. Multiply by 0.0283168466 to get cubic meters. Cubic meters are required for all shipping leaving the U.S., as the metric system is used by most other countries. You will be charged by the cubic meter.
5. Figure the cubic meters for your shipment. Weigh the break-bulk item. A break-bulk item will be charged based on weight instead of volume if its weight exceeds the density limit. The density limit is set individually by an ocean carrier (vessel), but generally the density limit is 45 lbs. per cubic foot and 750 kilograms per cubic meter.
6. Divide the weight (in kilos) by the cubic meters to get the density of your cargo: Density = weight / cubic meters. To convert pounds to kilos use the formula: 1 pound = 0.45359237 kilograms.
7. If your density exceeds the limit, you will be charged using the formulas: Weight of freight / 45 lbs = Chargeable volume in cubic feet. Weight of freight / 750 kilos = Chargeable volume in cubic meters.
Tips & Warnings
Less than container-load shipments always have a minimum charge. If your shipment is smaller than the minimum charge, shipping cargo by air is a better option.
