International air transport is now done through IKA, while local & foreign air lines freights are calculated based on weight and dimension. 

 

Note:
One of the most important elements that sometimes causes confusion, is how to calculate the weight in bill of lading.plz be noted that in air transportation two different elements of “gross weight” and “volume weight” are being estimated. Gross weight is the weight which obtains after cargo weighing on the scale of airport customs while volume weight is calculated according to the outer dimensions of the package after packaging process under below formula:
Volume weight= to multiply the length, width and height divided in 6000


Plz note that the maximum length, width and height of package measured in centimeter and the product of related numbers is divided in 6000. Obtained number formed the volume weight of the cargo.(For instance the volume weight of package within the dimensions of 100 cm length ,width and height is equal to 167kgs. In other words it becomes 167kgs per cubic meter.

When calculating the air freight between the gross weight and volume weight of the packages whichever is greater is used as chargeable weight in the pertaining BL. It should be noted that the gross weight of the whole packages is being compared.
