How LBC Express Calculates International Shipping Rates
LBC Express determines international shipping rates based on a few key factors:
- Weight – Rates are heavily influenced by the total weight of your package. The more it weighs, the more you’ll pay.
- Dimensions – If your package is oversized or oddly shaped, additional dimensional weight charges may apply.
- Destination – Shipping to farther destinations like Africa or South America will be more expensive than closer ones like Hong Kong.
- Service Level – LBC Express offers Air and Sea Freight options. Air Freight is faster but costs around 25-70% more.
- Other Services – Extra services like insurance, boxes, or special handling (pet shipping) add surcharges.
Once these factors are inputted, LBC Express generates a quoted rate with all costs included. Discounts may apply for frequent shippers.
