How are freight costs calculated?

Freight rates (air & ocean) vary between different origins and destinations. Freight costs are normally calculated by multiplying the freight rate by either the actual weight or the volume (volumetric weight) depending on whichever yields greater. Ocean freight rates are usually quoted per weight or measure, W/M. (W being 1000kg and M being 1m3 (35.32 cubic feet), whichever yields greater.)

No. There are other additional costs such as documentation fees, fuel surcharges etc. which will vary depending on the origin and destination of the shipment.
