Welcome to our “30 Seconds on Shipping” video series, brought to you by Great Circle International, https://gcinternational.ca/

Today we are going to looking at how the actual weight is determined. Actual weight is simply the actual weight of the freight. If the machine weighs 500 KG, the actual weight for shipping purposes is 500KG.

Depending on how you are shipping the freight the units can change so you have to be careful you don’t get them mixed up. You do not want a big surprise by mixing up lbs and KG.

For actual weights, air freight typically uses KG, ocean freight uses Tons, and trucking in North America is usually in pounds.

Remember to take into account the weight of the skid and crate when determining the actual weight. This is the gross weight of the shipment
