Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Charges Calculated by Weight for Shipments?

For large-light weight shipments, our shipment rates are calculated on the greater value between the actual weight of the shipment and the volumetric weight measures in kilograms. 

To calculate the volumetric weight, simply multiply the WIDTH by the LENGTH by the HEIGHT of your shipment (in metres) by 333.

Our volumetric (or cubic) conversion factor is 333 kilograms per cubic metre.

E.g., 0.8 * 0.5 * 0.7 * 333 = 93.24 kgs

 

What Is Freight Assist Australia’s Fuel Levy Surcharge?

The below information relating to our fuel levy surcharge is added to all freight rates.

Fuel Levy = ((((CF/1.1)-CR)-BF)/BF) *0.32

CF = current fuel (national average diesel price as published by AIP for each week ending of previous month divided by number of weeks)

CR = diesel fuel current rebate

BF = base fuel (when FAA started applying fuel levy; this is a net value, ex rebate and GST)

  • Asphyxiate
  • Burn
  • Eat metal or skin
  • Pollute the environment
  • Become unstable if mixed with other chemicals or products

What Does FAA Group Require to Legally Transport Your Dangerous Goods?

The shipper must at least supply the following details about the goods:

  • UN number
  • Quantity of goods being sent

Any other information that provides insight into the nature of the product is welcome and is recommended to add to the description.

Why Are There Laws and Regulations for Dangerous Goods?

When handled incorrectly, dangerous goods can endanger people and the environment. Laws ensure the safe handling and transportation of these goods, preventing damage to people and the environment. Penalties follow for those who do not follow the rules.
