LM Tariff: in the case of RO-RO seashipments some times a tariff based on the Linear Meter is used.

• ## Air Shipment

The freight charge is calculated on the Weight (Kos), the maximum ratio between weight (kos) and measurment (CBM) off 1.000 kos : 6 CBM, if the volume of the cargo is higher the ratio 1 : 6 then the paying unit can be obtained dividing the volume by 6.

• ## Road Transport

The freight charge is calculated on the Weight based on 100 Kos, the maximum ratio between weight (kos) and measurment (CBM) off 1.00 kos : 3 CBM; if the volume of the cargo is higher the ratio 1 : 3 then the paying unit can be obtained dividing the volume by 3.
