Air Freight:
Without sea freight, the airlines have decided to charge for the heavy merchandise (high density goods) by weight and lightweight merchandise (low density goods) by volume. However, airplanes can take less weight than ocean liners, the way they Set the standard, in the garment industry, when you ship goods by air, you have a 70% chance to be charged by weight, about 30% chance by volume.

1. From most shipping locations in the Far East to the U.S. destinations and Canada 7000 cubic cm = 1 kilo.
2. From certain locations in the Far East to the U.S. destinations and Canada 6000 cubic cm = 1kilo.
When you have low density goods to ship by air, in order to determine if you should try to make the cartons as small as possible to save freight. At first you should check with the local air forwarding agent by asking him in the country where you are, how many cubic cm is considered 1 kilo in weight. They will tell you either 7000 or 6000.

Now we have the 3 answers as follows, for example:
- The country name Bangladesh and the formula is 6000 cubic cm = 1 kilo
- The measurements of the cartons are 50cmX 60cmX 40cm
- The gross weight of the cartons is 16 kilo per carton.
Note:
Original size of the carton: 50 X 60 X 35 cm (=20 kilo)
Now cut down to 50 X60 X 35 cm= 105000 cubic cm.105000 / 6000 = 17.5 kilo
Now by using the new carton, we have saved 2.5 kilo and this carton will cost only $ 49.00 (17.5Kilo X 2.80).
