Does Fast Flow offer insurance for cargo?

How are freight costs calculated?
Freight rates (air & ocean) vary between different origins and destinations. Freight costs are normally calculated by multiplying the freight rate by either the actual weight or the volume (volumetric weight) depending on whichever yields greater. Ocean freight rates are usually quoted per weight or measure, W/M. (W being 1000kg and M being 1m3 (35.32 cubic feet), whichever yields greater.) For a quote, you would need to advise the commodity, value of goods and country of origin.
