The concept of 'dimensional weight' comes from the fact that the board of any aircraft has a limit of space. For example, a plane carrying capacity is 30,000 kg, and the aggregate amount of its cargo bay is only 120 m3. In this case, it is clear that airlines make air travel more interesting to 30,000 kg heavy goods (eg steel molds) than 120 m3 bulk cargo (eg, diapers). Thus, the term 'bulk load' is introduced to bring ratio weight / volume of goods to a common denominator. Forgetting a "detail" can be significantly go beyond the budget planned for, and without that, not a cheap air travel goods.

Coefficient for calculating the amount of weight in air transport: 6 cubic meters per metric ton, ie, 1 m3 = 167 kg pay-weight. Give an outline of the calculation of bulk cargo: 1) You must calculate the volume of each box in meters, ie, length x width x height multiplied by number of boxes – you get the volume of your shipment. 2) Then multiply the volume by a factor of 167 – we get the volumetric weight. It may be more than the actual total weight of the load. If so, the bulk density and will be paid for, that is, for calculate the air fares to deliver the resulting increase in bulk density. For example: the need to deliver three boxes about the size 120h60h90 cm and weighing 40 kg each. Translate size of one box in meters and multiply: 1.2 * 0.6 * 0.9 = 0.648 m3 is volume of a box.

0.648 * 3 = 1.944 m 3 – the amount of three boxes. Multiply the amount on the 167, we get 1.944 * 167 = 324 kg – a unit weight. We see that the weight (324 kg) is almost three times as much actual weight of the three boxes (120 kg). Thus, extra weight is 324 kg. That fares are (in U.S. dollars per kg) multiplied by the charge weight 324 kg. "Timlayn Service" to assist you competently carry air freight quickly, safely and profitably.
