Ocean freight calculation

International ocean freight shipping rates may be ALL-IN (all-inclusive) or may be subject to surcharges related to a particular origin-destination country. Surcharges in international shipping can be a percentage of ocean rates on top of ocean freight rates itself and/or lump sums added to the international ocean freight rate.

Important! Do not confuse total shipping cost on your international shipment with an ocean freight rate obtained from an international shipping company in an ocean freight quote provided.

Typically international LCL sea freight rates offered by international shipping companies on EXPORT cargo include origin charges, but do not include destination charges.

International ocean freight shipping rates offered by international shipping companies on IMPORT cargo may not include charges at origin as well.

Notice: These regulations may not apply if you use service from an international shipping company.
