HOW WOULD I BE

billing method is based on either the actual weightor the dimensional/volume (Dim)weight of your air cargo; whichever is greater. Dim weight is for the space your cargo
occupies. Dim weight billing is mostly for items that are very light and bulky e.g. baby car seats, car bumpers etc. Dim weight is calculated using this method (Length x Width x Height
