What are the weighting methods used for Sea and Air Shipping (Small Parcel)?

Asia5B uses 3 types of weighing methods, which are: 
1. Actual weight: Actual weight is the weight of the parcel once it is packaged. 
2. Average weight: Average weight is actual weight plus volumetric weight and then divided by two. 
3. Highest weight: Highest weight is the weight selected between actual and volumetric weight, whichever is greater.

NOTE: Volumetric weight is (Long x Width x High) cm / 6000

The current Sea and Air international shipping is based on the actual weight or volume weight, whichever is greater.

 1. If the volume of the consignment is of the actual weight, the freight will be settled in volume.
 Example: Actual weight 8kg, but larger: volume 60cm x 40cm x 30cm
 = 72000 / 6000
 = 12kg
 => Calculated as 12kg

 2. If the actual weight of the consignment is more than the weight of the shipment, the freight will be settled by using actual weight.
 Example: Actual weight 15kg, volume 60cm x 40cm x 30cm
 = 72000 / 6000
 = 12kg
 => Calculated as 15kg

Example Description:
The following is an illustration of international freight calculation with different products (pans and bedsheets) but placed in same size cartons.

 

What are the weighting methods used for Big Sea Shipping (Big Parcel)?

Cubic meter (m3) calculated by:

(Length x Weight x Height) in centimetres / 1,000,000

Example Description:

Length = 120 cm
Weight = 80 cm
Height = 80 cm

Cubic meter (m3) = (120 x 80 x 80) / 1,000,000 = 0.768

=> Calculated as 0.77m3 (after roundup 2 decimal point.

Big Sea Shipping = 0.77m3 x RM400 = RM308.00

 

Why should I pay the price difference although my order is paid fully during the one-time payment?

You may need to pay for the price difference due to certain cases, such as:
1. Seller increased the product's price (e.g. promotion ended, change in SKU) 
2. The price difference for China domestic fee (extra charges according to the distance between seller side and China warehouse)

 

I received an incomplete order, what should I do?

If you received an incomplete order item(s), kindly contact our customer service with proof (e.g. pictures).

 

Why do I receive my order in separate deliveries?

Normally, your parcel is separated into more than one deliveries because: 
1. Your parcel contains sensitive items, therefore it is separated into 2 parcels before it was shipped out from the China warehouse.
2. NG goods are received, so the seller has to resend the items again while our team seeks your advice if you would like the rest of the items to be shipped out first.

 

What if I am not at home when the package arrives?
