Air Freight Charges Non USA Customers:

Please note that empty capsules are shipped on "volume weight" basis by airlines under freight class 6001 (Pharmaceuticals).  For international air freight shipments Volume Weight = L x W x H in cms / 6000.   This formula is not applicable for air shipment within USA, therefore, do not use the tables below for such shipments. 

We recommend you print this page for reference.

The tables below give volume weight for our standard capsule packaging. Please select the type of pack (Pharma, Retail or Laboratory) you desire. For each capsule size you will find in the second column the number of capsules / case and in the fourth column the volume weight in kgs / case.

To calculate the air freight charges, decide the quantity of capsules you want to order.

bulletSelect one of the tables below for the type of packaging you want.
bulletSelect the capsule sizes you want.
bulletCalculate the # of cases you need by dividing the quantity of capsules you need by the number of capsules/case (column 2 of all the tables).
bulletCalculate the volume weight by multiplying the number of cases you need by the volume weight of each case (Column 4 of all the tables).
bulletRepeat above for all capsule sizes you want to order.
bulletAsk your freight forwarder or airline for the freight rates for Class 6001 Pharmaceuticals. Note, we ship FOB Fairfield, NJ or FOB Mumbai, India. Typically, there is a minimum charge and rates drop at the following tiers 45kg+, 100kg+, 300 kg+, etc.
bulletCalculate your total freight charge by multiplying the total volume weight for your entire order by the freight rate you were quoted.
