Air Freight Shipping Rates from the United States

Air shipping rates from the United States are calculated depending on the weight and size of the goods that need to be delivered. Due to the limited space in aircraft cargo compartments, carriers typically charge by dimensional weight, also known as volumetric weight, instead of gross weight. Volumetric weight is calculated using the following formula:

Vkg = А х В х С / 6000, where V is volumetric weight in kilograms, A, B, C are dimensions in centimeters.

Vkg = А х В х С / 363, where V is volumetric weight in kilograms, A, B, C are dimensions in inches.

Alcohol-containing, gas-containing and flammable goods (aerosols, varnishes, gas shock absorbers, batteries, engines, etc.) are considered dangerous for air transportation. Therefore, shipping rates for these categories of goods may be higher than regular ones. In such a case, MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) must be provided for rate calculation and shipping.

To calculate the shipping cost, you need to add up the cost of paperwork, duties and fees, the shipping rate by volumetric weight, and the cost of cargo delivery to the airport. Delivery includes the issuance of an invoice, an air waybill and other required documents, transportation to the airport in New York, and dispatch to the recipient’s airport. Cargo acceptance and customs clearance are carried out by the recipient or their authorized representative in the destination airport.
