Shipping kept simple with base-plus

Freight companies are laughing all the way to the bank with their 10 to 15 line invoices. Every little charge ‘justifiable and easily explained’ if you’ve ever questioned…

‘BASE-PLUS’ has stripped back all accessories and taken the guess work out of shipping charges by keeping it simple.

There are two simple forms of costs in shipping. ‘Static’ and ‘fluid’. Your Bills of Lading, Air Waybill or Customs Fee is Static (It doesn’t change, we call it the BASE charge) Then on the other hand you have unit measures like, airfreight per kilo, or Port and Delivery charges which are weight/measure fees and are ‘fluid’ (the total changes based on size –we call it PLUS fees).

This table shows how these are grouped to reduce costs.

Multiply your PLUS fees by the size and then add the BASE charge…..DONE!!!
