When your goods are ready, you can collect them from our office or opt to have the goods delivered to your doorstep in Kigali for a small fee.

We do not have minimum weight requirements! This means that if your order is e.g. 0.10 kg, that's the exact weight that you'll pay for!

You can also shop from stores that are not in the US, such as AliExpress or GearBest, which are in China. It's all good as long as the seller can ship to the US.

We currently ship every other week, we will begin weekly shipping once the weekly load is sufficient.

What is Actual vs Volumetric Weight?

It is important that you understand the difference between actual weight and volumetric weight, and when they are used.

Actual weight is the weight of your goods as it reads on the scale, while volumetric weight is weight based on the volume (space) that your goods take.

To get the volumetric weight, multiply the Length x Width x Height (cm), then divide the answer by 6,000.

The weight bill will be based on either the actual weight or the volumetric weight, whichever is greater.

Why? An aircraft can transport very light goods that take-up lots of space, or very dense and heavy goods such as iron, which will quickly cause the aircraft the reach the maximum takeoff weight, without fully utilizing all the space in the aircraft.

In the first case when an aircraft is transporting lightweight goods that take up lots of space, the aircraft will not be profitable if they charge based on actual weight, that because the goods will be very light, yet taking up lots or all the space. The aircraft will have to know what their space is worth, so that when volumetric weight is greater than the actual weight, they will bill based on volumetric weight, thus allowing them to meet their operational costs, and be profitable.

In the second case, when an aircraft is transporting dense and heavy items, the aircraft will reach its maximum takeoff weight without all the space in the aircraft being utilized. In that case, the airlines will not be profitable if they bill based on the volume because heavy dense goods will use up less space. In order for the airlines to meet their operational costs and be profitable, they will need to know what their maximum takeoff weight is worth, then bill based on actual weight, when actual weight of the cargo is greater than the volumetric weight.
