For our Airfreight customers, please be advised that we base our computations in 2 ways.
Computation number 1:
(BY KILOGRAMS) e.g. Total kg x ₱ 750= TOTAL
Computation number 2:
(BY VOLUMETRIC WEIGHT) e.g. (Total cbm x 167) x ₱ 750= TOTAL
*Final freight cost will still depend on the actual dimension and weight of your package.
What will I do if my supplier failed to give/lost airwaybill?
If the receipt is lost, kindly message our team 2-3 days after—for us to check on the system.
How to compute my China - Sea Freight?
Computation no. 1
Total cbm x cbm rate
Computation no. 2
This is how to determine if your packages will be based on the KG rate.
total weight / total cbm = kg/cbm
500kg/cbm is the threshold to consider if your package is overweight or not.
if kg/cbm is 500kg/cbm and above, your freight cost will be based on our KG rate, which is ₱ 25/kg or ₱ 30/kg, depends on where your packages will fall under what commodities.
Total cbm: 0.657cbm
Total kg: 408kg
408kg / 0.657cbm = 621kg/cbm
408kg x ₱ 25 = ₱ 10,200 (total Shipping/freight cost)
REMINDER: The Total freight cost will be based on the actual dimension and weight of your packages.
