Minimum chargeable weight for Air and Sea Freight is 0.5kg per box and an incremental weight break of 0.1kg thereafter.

SHIPPING TIP: As per freight industry practice, the chargeable weight of a package is calculated based on Volumetric or Actual weight, whichever is higher.
Volumetric weight of a package is a calculation that reveals the density of a package and we use the below formula to derive the volumetric weight of a package: Volumetric weight = [length(cm) x breadth(cm) x height(cm) ] / 5,000cm
You can advise your merchant to ensure proper packaging or pack your purchase into a smallest possible box.
In addition, you can consolidate your shipping charges by paying multiple packages together. As such, only one single base charge is billed.
