Shipping Household Goods by Air
Air freight offers the quickest transit time at a premium price when compared to ocean freight. However, weight, size, and destination must be taken into consideration.
Air freight should be considered when you must meet a deadline. As a rule, it is more economical to forward only essential items such as clothing while shipping the balance of your home by ocean freight. Air freight for moving overseas is usually utilized for small shipments or for items required urgently at destination.
Air freight costs are based on the chargeable weight (measured by volume) or the actual weight of your personal belongings whichever is higher.
How to calculate the chargeable weight.
Multiply the length by the width and the height of each item to obtain the cubic inches, for the chargeable weight in kilograms, divide the cubic inch result by 366.
We recommend that each piece have a size of at least one cubic foot (12" X 12" X 12"). When using this service, think dimensionally. The combined dimensions of length, width and height of each package cannot exceed 90 inches. The maximum allowable weight of each piece is 100 lbs/45 kgs. The maximum size and weight allowed for shipments depends on the aircraft and its destination.
