Air and Ocean Shipments Calculator.

Air shipments are calculated based in function of the weight. Either the real weight or volumetric weight whichever is higher. To calculate a volumetric weight is used the international formula

Volumetric Weight:   Length x Width x Depth

                                  ------------------------------

                                                    166

The cost of a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight. This is the volumetric (or dimensional) weight. The three dimensions are considered in inches in our calculator. The result are pounds.

Ocean shipments are calculated based in function of the volume. To calculate the volume an international formula is used

         Volume:     Length x Width x Depth

                              ------------------------------

                                            1728

The cost of a shipment can be affected by the additional weight that carries on the container, rather than the actual volume. The three dimensions are considered in inches in our calculator. The result are cubic feet.
