Historically, shipping costs have been calculated based on the gross weight or actual weight in kilograms or pounds.

However, by charging only by weight, low-density packages become unprofitable for air cargo carriers due to the amount of space they take up in an aircraft.

For example, if a carrier charged the same for shipping a pound of feathers as they do for a pound of produce it would be unprofitable.

If a shipment is less than the minimum density of the industry standard, then the actual weight is not relevant and the freight carrier will charge based on dimensional weight.

Dimensional Weight as length x width x height / dimensional factor. Dimensional weight is also known as DIM weight, volumetric weight, and cubed weight.

In addition to providing air freight forwarding service with our reliable air carriers, BGI also offers a full array of options for trucking and drayage services and warehousing and distribution services once your shipment has landed.

Your shipments are always monitored in the air and on the ground to ensure on-time delivery.
