Why do you require dimensions and weights to get a rate quote for LCL (less than container load) or air freight shipments?
LCL and air freight shipment rates are based on volume or gross weight, whichever is greater. In order to calculate the volume of a shipment, the dimensions of each piece are required. If the volume weight exceeds the actual gross weight, the shipment is rated at the volume weight. If the volume weight is less than the actual weight, the shipment is rated at the actual weight.
