Air Freight Frequently Asked Questions

How are air freight rates calculated?

Air freight rates are calculated using shipment weight.

When comparing air freight rates, the pricing will usually be given to you as a cost per kilogram. However, in freight, weight is determined either by the gross weight (i.e. what you see when you put the shipment on a scale) or volumetric weight (i.e. the size of the shipment). We wrote an article about this HERE.

After the size, some suppliers have additional fees. These may be oversized fees (cartons too big), operations fees (flat costs), and remote locations fees.

Why are air freight rates so high?

COVID, COVID, and COVID!

We know you're tired of hearing about it, and we're definitely tired of talking about it! Unfortunately the reality is that logistics is still heavily impacted by outbreaks at ports and a reduced number of flights.

Prior to the pandemic, air freight rates were available for around US$ 7.00/kg during peak season (heavy shipping volume), and around $US 4.00 during slow season (significantly less shipping volume). At COVID's peak we were seeing close to US$ 20/kg! Nowadays pricing is floating in the US$ 12.00/kg range depending on delivery time and whether tax and duty are rolled into the price.
