Transportation Cost is Determined by:
Your air freight transportation cost is based on the destination, speed of delivery, the commodity, weight, dimensions and how the shipping is paid for. Sometimes itís cheaper to send more then less.
Why? Because of the minimum charges most carriers charge can really increase your shipping cost. Itís best to check with the air carriers for rates & minimums before you decide to order your perishables. Hopefully, by doing this first it will save you on your shipping costs later.
