Minimum chargeable weight for Air Freight is 0.5kg per box and an incremental weight break of 0.1kg thereafter. Invoice will be based on the chargeable weight.
Minimum chargeable weight for Sea Freight is 10kg per box and an incremental weight break of 0.1kg thereafter.
*Chargeable to whichever weight is higher.

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.
