Air transport is suitable for express, but also valuable, sensitive and perishable goods, then.

Airfreight costs are calculated based on the actual or volumetric weight of goods (chargeable weight) according to data in AWB (Air Way Bill – freight bill). The volumetric weight of goods is different from the actual weight of goods to determine freight costs. In air transport, the conversion to the volumetric weight is given by the ration 1:6000 or 1 cbm = 167 kg.
For example, if your consignment has got a volume of 1.5 cbm and an actual weight of 150 kg, its volume or countable weight will be 1.5 x coefficient for conversion 167 = 250.50 kg.
Prices are always calculated for each specific carriage on the basis of current exchange rates, transport market rates, currency, fuel, and seasonal or other surcharges.
