Ocean LCL rates are charged per weight or measurement of shipment,
whichever yields greater revenue
to the carrier.
W = Weight = 1000 kilos = 2204.60 pounds M = Measurement = 1 cubic meter = 35.31 cubic feet
To calculate the correct ocean freight LCL charges, we need to know the actual gross weight of the shipment
in kilos or pounds and the measurements of each box or package: length, width, and height in Inches or centimeters.
To calculate the measurement of the shipment, take the greatest length x greatest width x greatest height in inches and multiply by the total number of packages, then divide by 1728 then multiply by 0.02832 the result will be in cubic meters.
