Many mid-sized companies do import and export, and want to work with forwarders, but they are limited by the current process. Meanwhile, forwarders are equally strained by the amount of “free” work they do, and by being treated like a bank. Shipz is a neutral bid-and-ship platform for mid-market shippers, providing forwarders with a safe space to stay in the ring.

Many shipments are charged by weight, but some items are bulky and don't weight much. In this case, shipment costs are calculated based on how much space items occupy on the aircraft or truck. This is called volume weight, or dimensional weight. We automatically check this for you, and the greater of the two weights is used to work out your chargeable weight.
Inches: Length x Width x Height / 166 = Your volume weight in lbs
Inches: Length x Width x Height / 366 = Your volume weight in kg
Centimeters: Length x Width x Height / 6000 = Your volume weight in kg
