 # How much does it cost to ship goods to the UK?

Before mailing express delivery, I believe that many people will know the cost of sending their products abroad in advance, and hope to mail the goods to the designated destination at a cheaper price. There are usually four ways at large to calculate the freight. Today we are going to introduce three of them to you about the charges for transporting goods from China to the UK. For ocean freight, we will only carry out it if the customer requests.

If you want to deliver a package from China to the UK, then check the above form.

First, the time delivery of dedicated line registered general merchandise will be 7-10 business days and since there are limits on weight and size, you’d better pay attention to it just in case something is wrong.

Example1, just think about it: if I have a parcel with a volume of 28*26*28cm that weighs 2.5 kilograms, how much should I pay for it?

step1. Examine the weight

In general, we usually take volume weight and actual weight into consideration, and the larger weight will be taken between actual weight and volume weight which we have introduced before.

volume weight (kg)= 28 (cm)× 26 (cm)× 228(cm)/8000=2.55kg

Refer to: volume weight (kg)= length (cm)× width (cm)× height (cm)/8000.

Actual weight(kg)=2.5kg

Volume weight&gt; Actual weight, so we choose volume weight to calculate the cost

step2. calculate total fee

As you can see, 2.53kg belongs to the third stage(2.001-3KG), and it costs 41.9 yuan per kilogram according to the form, then add the operating cost and you will get the total fee.

Total fee=2.55kg×41.6+17=123.08RMB=\$25.4

In the same way, we can get a cost calculation formula:

The total cost = the weight of the package × corresponding cost standard+ operating cost

For small packages, the price will have an advantage if it weighs about 2-3kg. However, as for parcels weighing above 5kg, the rule of thumb is to choose international express, which is much more economical. The common international express companies are as follows: DHL, EMS, TNT Express, UPS, FedEx.

Example2, if you have a small batch of cargo weighing 42kg with a volume of 72*70*68cm, and you want to send them to the UK, how much should you pay?

step1, volume weight (kg)= 72 (cm)× 70 (cm)×68(cm)/8000=42.84kg

Refer to: volume weight (kg)= length (cm)× width (cm)× height (cm)/8000.

Actual weight(kg)=42kg

Volume weight &gt; Actual weight, so we choose volume weight to calculate the cost.

step2, check the form above, and you will know the charge is 46RMB/KG

Total fee=42.84×46=1970.64RMB=\$407

notes:

Generally, small batches of goods less than 45 kg are sent by international express, while large batches of goods larger than 45 kg are generally sent by international air.

Example3, if I have a consignment of cargo with a volume of 747268cm that weighs 70kilograms, and I want a free customs clearance fee service. How much should I pay for it?

step1

volume weight (kg)= 80 (cm)× 88(cm)×82(cm)/8000=72.16kg

Actual Weight(kg)=70kg

Volume weight &gt; Actual weight, so we choose volume weight to calculate the cost.

step2, check the form above, and you will know the charge is 57RMB/KG

weight fee=72.16×57=4113.12RMB

Tax price: 72.16 ×6=433RMB

Total fee=4113.12+433=4546.12RMB=\$938
