What is chargeable weight?

Air freight calculator is based on volume measured weight also known as volumetric weight. The air freight will always be charged per kilogram against the greater weight whether it is the actual or volumetric weight. Typically, large items with a light overall weight take up more space on an aircraft than a small, heavy item.  That’s why the Airlines charge according to Chargeable Weight.
