Because of the epidemic situation, air freight rate is rising rapidly. How to reduce the transportation cost of air cargo?
According to the regulations of the airline, when the volume of the cargo is small and the weight is large, it shall be calculated according to the actual weight; when the volume of the cargo is large and the weight is small, it shall be calculated according to the volume. At the time of centralized shipment, a batch of goods consists of many different goods, including light goods and heavy goods. The charging weight is the total gross weight or total volume weight of the whole batch of goods, calculated according to which is greater.
There are several ways to reduce transportation costs:
1. Choose express service carriers such as UPS or Po, the air freight is cheaper, but the transportation time cannot be guaranteed.
2. While the airline is short of cargo, sometimes they will offer a special price in a short period of time.
3. High density and overweight goods, because of small volume and not occupying the space, can get preferential freight.
4. Large volume light goods, sometimes you can get some discount.
As European and American countries gradually recover from the epidemic, the demand for general cargo air transportation is growing, and the demand for epidemic prevention materials (masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, forehead temperature grab) will shift to other countries.
