Cost calculation and international transport process

In term of present world of business, transport plays a vital role since it very much affects business growth in term of speed and cost. Importers and exporters should realize the way how to transport at a very competitive cost with a brief scope as follow: 
Modes of international transport:

Cost calculation as follow:
CBM = Width x Length x Height (cms) / 1,000,000
Ex. Want to send clothes to U.S.A.,Carton Size : 50x60x50 cms. 5 Cartons
    CBM = 50x60x50 cms. /1,000,000 x 5 cartons = 0.75
  ***Cost is based on  min.at  1 CBM ***
2. Air transport: suitable for small volume cargo or require shorter transit time, the cost is mainly based on weight of the shipment
Cost calculation as follow:
Chargeable weight = actual gross weight  Vs Volume or dimension weight (Whichever greater)
Volume or dimension weight = width x length x height (cms) / 6,000
Cost is based on chargeable weight for each required destination
Ex. Want to send clothes to U.S.A.,Carton Size : 50x60x50 cms. 1 Carton
  Actual weight is 30 kgs
  Dimention weight = 50x60x50 cms./6,000 = 25 kgs but actual weight is 30 kgs
*** Chargeable weight (kgs) is 30 kgs ***
3. Rail or truck transport: suitable for neighbouring countries which shares Thailand’s border like Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, China etc.
