HOW TO UNDERSTAND A QUOTATION AND CALCULATE THE PRICE?
The air freight price can be calculated by using two different methods. The first is the following: the cost per kilograms multiplied with the weight of the shipment.
Nonetheless, because an Airbus or a Boeing owns a limited loading space, weight isn’t the only parameter to consider. For a low-density cargo (meaning a small weight, with a big volume), you will be invoiced according to the volume rather than the weight.
This is called the
“volumetric weight”. It’s very simple to calculate it:
Remark : Volumetric
Length x width x depth / 6000 = Volumetrice
From the dimensions of your shipment,
you can also compute your volumetric weight by yourself.
Air freight is the fastest solution to transfer goods worldwide. However, note that it’s not an adapted solution to all kind of shipment.

THE EXPRESS SOLUTION
Air freight is the fastest method of transport. On a long distance, it is undisputedly the first way, compared to the others in term of time. For an Air freight between Turkey and UK for example, it only need a few hours to travel between the two territories.
Nevertheless, it’s important to remind the complexity of international transportation, whose freight is only a part of. In fact, there is many other steps that are taking more time than the freight itself, and that you cannot avoid. The paperwork, which includes the custom clearance and the export/import charges, the pickup, the handling and the delivery at the final address are obligatory elements affecting considerably the total delay.
SHOULD I USE AIR FREIGHT ?
As mentioned previously, Air freight can be a valuable option for goods with high added value, high density or small volume.
This method is also adapted for all your precious or fragile goods. Strict security conditions limit the risks of theft…
You can also use it when you have time constraints and that your goods should be delivered ASAP.
Shipment procedures for this transport method are quite simple:
Provide packing list and invoice by email.
Booking for your shipment. Goods pick up at your supplier’s address, then trucking Packing and control of the package if needed, and delivery at the most available international airport Custom declaration phase Packages are loaded to Air Freight Custom clearance (VAT and other taxes) Delivery to your address.
HOULD I BOOK THE DELIVERY BY MYSELF, OR WILL MY SUPPLIER DO IT?
Your supplier can book the shipment of your goods via his own freight forwarder. However, we advise you to book the Air freight by yourself. You will surely get better rates by doing it on your own. Your supplier will sell you this service a lot more expensive than it really is, if he does it by himself.
CAN I OBTAIN AN INSURANCE FOR MY AIR FREIGHT?
Yes, insurance for Air freight is although strongly recommended.
Turkey Cargo Info : The cost of our insurance service represents 2,85% of the value of the declared goods. But, we would recommend
you to ask once again to make sure.
ARE THERE PARTICULAR RESTRICTIONS THAT I SHOULD KNOW?
Yes. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) imposed restrictions on shipments containing lithium batteries, like most of the electronic devices. Furthermore, dangerous item and imitation or fake products.
To comply, the consignor must condition its goods in agreement with IATA rules, ensure that the goods are correctly marked and labelled, and bring the required documentation.
HOW AMAZON INFLUENCED THE MARKET?
“Amazon literally transformed the market. Usually, stocks were sent by containers in Europe, in the USA, and then dispatched on e-commerce platforms or directly to the customer. Nowadays the model changed, the preparation of the order is directly made in Turkey, then small parcels are right after sent to Europe and USA. The custom taxes and barriers have been simplified in that aim. There is no need to have a company in Europe or in the USA to import and deliver to customers!
This created a brand-new market segment, the small parcel market. These parcels are directly sent to Amazon or to other European and American e-commerce platforms. Turkey suppliers are now selling their products with the freight costs directly included. This reveals a new market, the market of the Asian producers that are directly selling to the final customer via e-commerce platforms.
The rise of the air freight prices doesn’t cause that much trouble to the e-entrepreneurs that are aiming to deliver their products asap. On the different e-commerce websites, suppliers are rated in terms of reliability but also on delivery capacities. These platforms are hard to please and push the e-entrepreneurs to be the best because the rates are determining their ranking. They are ready to invest in order to be more competitive on delays.
In 2021 during peak season, approximately 40% to 45% of the Aircraft holds where fulfilled with e-commerce products. In 2022, it will probably overcome the 50%. This trend is particularly stressed from Turkey to Europe or to the USA. It should be marked that the USA have an optimized custom system which allows each household to have a daily importation quota, without taxes and custom clearance. It really eases the import of small parcels from Turkey and encourage the globalization. A Turkish supplier or producer can directly sell to a European or American customer. It also eases the access to further similar products, that will be sent by planes.
