Additional Notes for Air Freight Calculation:

To facilitate a seamless processing of air shipments, it is key to adhere to specific parameters. 

  • Each parcel must not exceed dimensions of 120cm x 80cm x 80cm, with a maximum weight limit of 70kg.
  • Oversized and overweight parcels will be subject to additional charges as applicable.

Typically, we employ two distinct methods for calculating billing weight based on the cargo’s characteristics:

(1) The Actual Weight Method is applied when the difference between the actual weight and volumetric weight is ≤ 10kg. In such cases, the billing weight is equivalent to the actual weight.

(2) The Average Weight Method is utilised when the difference between the actual weight and volumetric weight exceeds 10kg. Here, the billing weight is calculated as the average of the actual weight and volumetric weight, divided by 2.

(3) Additionally, if the actual weight surpasses the volumetric weight, the billing weight is solely based on the actual weight. These meticulous calculations are implemented to guarantee precise and equitable pricing for all shipments.

Cost of Air Freight Shipping
Actual Weight Method
Average Weight Method
Description
If the difference of the actual weight and volumetric weight is less than 10kg, then the billable weight will be equal to the actual weightIf the difference of the actual weight and volumetric weight is more than 10kg, then the billable weight will be equal to (actual weight + volumetric weight) / 2
Example
Actual weight of cargo = 8kg

Volumetric weight of cargo = 5.4kg

*Assume volumetric weight of parcel is (30x30x30cm) / 5,000 = 5.4kg
Actual weight of cargo = 8kg

Volumetric weight of cargo = 43.2kg

*Assume volumetric weight of parcel is (60x60x60cm) / 5,000 = 43.2kg
Shipping Fees
As the difference in the actual weight and volumetric weight is 2.6kg (which is less than 10kg), the actual shipping fee will be:

8kg x RM 15.50 = RM 124
As the difference in the actual weight and volumetric weight is 35.2kg (which is more than 10kg), the actual shipping fee will be:

[(35.2kg + 8kg) / 2] x RM 15.50 = RM 334.80

Cost of Shipping via Sea Freight

The cost of shipping via sea freight is highly dependent on the size and nature of the cargo. You may refer to the tables below for a rough estimate:

Additional Notes for Sea Freight Calculation:

In the calculation of our sea shipments, we consider the higher value between the volumetric weight and the actual weight of the cargo.

Calculation via Weight
Calculation via Volume
Example
Actual weight of cargo = 10kg

Volumetric weight of cargo = 5.4kg

*Assume volumetric weight of parcel is (30x30x30cm) / 5,000 = 5.4kg
Volume of cargo = 0.729 m³

*Assume volumetric weight of parcel is (90x90x90cm) / 1,000,000 = 0.729 m³
Shipping Fees
As the actual weight of the cargo is heavier, 10kg will be used during the calculation.

RM 24.00 + [RM 5.00 x 7] = RM 59.00

RM 24.00 for the first 3kg and RM 5.00 for each of the subsequent kilograms
RM 155.00 + [RM 48.00 x 2] + [RM 47.00 x 3] = RM 392.00

*RM 155.00 for the first 0.3m³, RM 48.00 each for the next 0.2m³ and RM 47.00 each for the next 0.3m³.

Shipping Time from India to Malaysia

Considering the expansive size of India, the specific pick-up address for the shipment becomes a crucial factor affecting the overall transit time. It is essential to note that shipping timings are also contingent on the actual pickup location, with major cities like Mumbai and Delhi playing a role in determining the delivery schedule. 

Additionally, for shipments originating from locations like Bangladesh, variations in transit times may occur based on the chosen transportation method and the proximity to these key shipping hubs.

Most importantly, the shipping duration from India to Malaysia hinges significantly on whether the cargo is shipped via air freight or sea freight.

Air Freight

Air freight involves transporting a shipment using an air carrier, providing the quickest solution for time-sensitive deliveries. Known for its quick speed and efficiency, air freight is the preferred option for time-sensitive shipments. 

 It stands out as the most economical option for shipping small and lightweight packages (below 30kg). Furthermore, it is a viable choice for transporting larger shipments with dimensions of 120cm x 80cm x 80cm.

Sea Freight

Sea freight refers to transportation of goods by sea using cargo vessels. Shipping from India to Malaysia by sea would take around 8 – 12 days. It is a cost-effective method to transport goods globally, making it an ideal choice when prioritising affordability.

Haulx offers flexibility between Less than Container Load (LCL) and Full Container Load (FCL).

Note!

In FCL sea freight shipping, a single shipper’s goods fill an entire container, available in 20-inch and 40-inch sizes. On the other hand, LCL shipping is ideal for smaller cargo volumes, as it involves consolidating shipments from multiple shippers into one container, providing cost-effective shipping rates.
