US FBA LCL truck’s shipping cost

There are generally two ways to calculate the shipping cost of sea truck

One is charged by volume (CBM) and the other is charged by weight (KG).

Different logistics companies and channels may have different quotes and rules, so sellers need to consult and compare in advance.

Charge by Volume

Generally there is a requirement of starting volume, such as 1 CBM or 2 CBM, if the volume of goods is not enough for the starting volume, the shipping fee should be calculated according to the starting volume. If the volume of goods is less than the starting volume, the shipping fee will be calculated according to the starting volume. The volume-based sea card is generally not tax-paid, and the seller needs to bear the tax and other costs at the destination port, such as inspection fees, overtime charges, etc.

Charge by weight

Generally double clearing and tax inclusive, that is to say, the shipping fee has already included the tax and other costs of the destination port, the seller does not need to pay extra.
There is no requirement of starting quantity for weight-based Haika, as long as it meets the minimum chargeable weight, such as 50KG or 100KG, if the weight of the goods is not enough for the minimum chargeable weight, the shipping fee will be calculated according to the weight of the minimum chargeable weight.
