Freight needs to be calculated according to the specific cargo situation. The following is a rough calculation method for freight:
A. FCL: The FCL freight is divided into three parts, the total freight = the sum of the three parts.
1. Basic freight = basic unit freight × number of whole boxes
2. Port surcharge = unit port surcharge × number of containers
3. Fuel surcharges = unit fuel surcharges × number of whole containers
B. LCL packing: LCL freight only has basic freight, which can be calculated by volume and weight.
1. Calculated by volume, X1 = unit basic freight (MTQ) × total volume
2. Calculated by weight, X2 = unit basic freight (TNE) × total gross weight
Finally, take the larger one of X1 and X2.
As for other customs declaration fees, customs clearance fees, etc., they need to be calculated based on actual conditions.
