Weight and volume as basis for pricing

Transportation charges are determined based on shipment’s gross weight or volume weight. Volume weight is calculated by dividing shipment’s cubic centimeters by 6 000. Therefore, 6dm3 = 1kg and 1m3 = approx. 167kg. If a shipment’s volume weight is larger than the gross weight, the shipment is priced according to volume weight.

Freight charges

All charges related to a shipment are listed on the AWB of the shipment in question. The charges can always and in all countries be collected from the shipper, or in most countries also from the consignee.

Finnair Cargo accepts shipments only on prepaid (PP) basis, except in some exceptional situations (e.g. return shipments) in which CC (charges collect) shipments might be accepted if pre-approved by Finnair Cargo Customer service. For further information please contact our Customer Service (

Note! When sending special freight (for example live animals) all charges are always collected from the shipper. The charges must also be paid in the country of origin when the value of the goods does not correspond to the freight charges. (for example specimens, printed materials etc.) or the shipper is also the consignee.

If the freight charges are collected in the country of destination, the airline will, depending on the country, charge from the consignee an additional collection fee. The amount of the fee is based on the freight charges. If the consignee for some reason refuses to claim a shipment, the shipper is always responsible for all applicable freight and other charges.
