Frequently asked questions about our air freight services

Air freight services

Depending on the value of your cargo and the air freight company you use, your cargo may or may not be automatically insured. Be sure to ask about insurance when arranging your air freight shipping. In some cases, you may be able to purchase insurance for your cargo through the freight forwarder or airline. At WeFreight, we can help you choose the right level of cargo insurance and arrange cover for you.

While documentation requirements differ from country to country, the following are the minimum you will require for air freight shipping:
• Commercial Invoice
• Air Waybill (AWB)
• Packing List
• Certificate of Origin
• Letter of Credit or other payment terms

While we aim to offer optimum transit times that support our customers’ requirements, many factors beyond our control make it impossible to offer guarantees. However, we always work with our air cargo partners to ensure schedules are met as often as is possible.

The chargeable weight (CW) of air freight is determined by the gross weight (GW) or the volume weight (VW), whichever is greater. The following formula is used to determine the chargeable weight: Imperial: L x W x H in inches (in) / 165 = VW (in lbs.) Metric: L x W x H in centimetres (cm) / 6,000 = VW (in kgs).

Yes, there are limits to the size and weight of cargo that can be shipped by air freight. Please contact your local WeFreight office for more information on air freight limits.
