Minimum weight requirement is 2 lbs. per package for personal effects / 3 lbs. for electronic items/ commercial quantity.
Should your package be large and disproportionate to its weight, the chargeable weight will be based on the volume of the package. The computation is: L x W x H /166 = lbs.
Chargeable weight that has a 0.3 or higher fraction of a pound is rounded up to the next pound. Example: a package weighing 2.3 lbs. will count as 3 lbs.
The exact freight charges can only be determined after its weight and size are measured in our New York office.
