Ship boxes by cubic meter

If shipping goods from the USA LCL, then intentional freight rates are calculated in cubic meters or cubic feet. It means that in sea freight shipping, as a rule, the weight of shipping goods is not a pricing factor. Most of the time, you can disregard the weight of shipping goods.

However, in multimodal international cargo transportation by sea, freight rates in the ground parts of transportation are calculated per kilo or lbs.
