How to find Basic Ocean freight under LCL shipment?

 Chargeable Volume under LCL (Less than Container Load) Shipment?


Question 2

Find the total basic Ocean freight for the following LCL shipment:-

a)      Length              –       2.5m

b)      Width               –       1.2 m

c)       Height               –     80 cm  à .8 m

d)      Total weight    -      2 ton 

e)      Rate                   -      $ 20 /cbm

 

Total items        -     2 parcels with same measurements

 

Solution

 

Volume   = length * width* height

 

    2.5*1.2*0.8 = 2.4

                 2.4 * 2 = 4.8 cbm  

                                                                  

               2 tons means 2 cbm

Since, 2 cbm < 4.8 cbm,   (Gross volume is accounted)     

   4.8 * 20 = 96

 

So, Total ocean freight for the LCL shipment is $ 96
