The shippers should provide the appropriate weight of the products to be displayed in the Trading portal.
The supplier should provide the Gross Weight and Volumetric Weight of each Package accurately. These details should be obtained after completion of proper packaging which is in accordance with the shipping requirement.
Calculation of Gross Weight
Gross Weight = Weight of the Product + Container + Packing Materials (g)
The formula for the Volumetric Weight
Volumetric Weight = Length (cm) x Width (cm) x Height (cm) / 5000
** cm = centimetre
The freight charges will be calculated based on the Gross weight or volumetric weight whichever is higher. i.e if the Volumetric weight is higher than the Gross weight, volumetric weight will appear as the weight of the product in the portal.
E.g.: Gross weight of a package is 50 kg and the dimensions of the product are 65cm x 65cm x 85 cm
Volume weight = 65 x 65 x 85 / 5000 = 71.82 kg
Since the volume weight (71.82) is higher than the gross weight, the freight will be calculated on 71.82Kg.
The freight forwarder will monitor the weight of the packages to be shipped and if any difference with the weights provided to the portal and available weight at the point of shipment, will inform the shipper to bear the difference.
Price should include a 6% transaction commission which consists of commission payable to Bank (5%) and the SLEDB (1%) of each B2C transaction.
The shipper is liable to obtain and bear the cost of necessary documents and other requirements needed such as Quality, product certifications, Insurance etc prior to shipment of purchased products.
