Price list shipping companies, generally based on the different types and nature of goods, and ease of loading and storage, and divided into several levels. The same routes, due to a different level of goods, the basic rates charged by shipping companies is different. Therefore, the level of goods and has a lot to the level of freight.

Secondly, the calculation of shipping costs are not the same standard, such as heavy goods received tons of general freight by weight, light Paohuo be collected by size-ton, and some high-value goods by a certain percentage of FOB value of income, and some goods be collected by mixed methods, such as press or the size of the weight of tons of tons of revenue, then add a number from the price of shipping, and in the tariff table is:


First, by weight of tons of income, known as the weight of tons, the table set out in "W", per tonne or per long ton unit.

Second, by cargo volume in the collection, tons of known size, the table set out in "M", generally based on cubic feet 1 cubic meter or 40 tons as the unit of a size.

Third, by volume or weight, calculated by the ship selection, sheet as "W / M".
