FAQ (frequently asked questions)

What is volumetric weight?

The volumetric weight of the shipment (dimensional weight) is the calculated value at which the density of the goods is taken into account. Due to the fact that objects having a low density, like cotton wool for example, occupy a larger volume, the volume weight of the package is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the cargo. With the same volume, metals weigh much more, but their volume is much less. To calculate the cost of departure, use the weight that is greater - either actual gross weight or volumetric.

In order to avoid overload of the aircraft, carrier companies calculate the volumetric weight in modern line aircrafts with modern technological improvements. This allows not only to improve the safety of transportation, but also to increase the operational efficiency of the cargo room of the airliner.

A lighter and more compact package is used to increase the efficiency of use of cargo holds. It is more profitable for shippers to use modern packaging, due to which the volume of shipments is reduced and the cost of transportation is reduced.

How to calculate the volume of goods that have a complex shape (a chair for example)?

In order to calculate the volume of goods that have complex and irregular shape (different from rectangular or parallelepiped), the maximum dimensions of the goods that have the largest projection are used. That is, the dimensions of the legs and back of the chair are taken into account.

What is forbidden to be transported by our service

You are not allowed to ship:

Various goods that are prohibited by the World Transport Association are also prohibited for carriage. In addition, it will not be possible to ship items by parcel that may, due to packaging or their special characteristics, pose a danger to employees working on shipping parcels.

The twenty-foot container is a general purpose container and has ISO 1496/1 standard. Such containers are sealed from moisture and dust. These containers are completely closed from the outside and have hard walls on all sides (roof, side walls, end walls and bottom). At one end wall, such a container is provided with doors which are necessary for loading, transporting or storing a variety of goods.

The actual size of containers can vary with slight differences, since all manufacturers apply their own standards and technological standards in production. We have indicated in the tables the standard dimensions of the containers that are manufactured by CIMC.

Standard 40-foot container

The forty-foot container is also a general purpose container and has ISO 1496/1 standard. These containers are sealed from moisture and dust. These containers are completely closed from the outside and have hard walls on all sides (roof, side walls, end walls and bottom). At one end wall, such a container is provided with doors which are necessary for loading, transporting or storing a variety of goods.
