*** Ocean shipping is case by case, please contact us for a quote. Just for your information, typically, it is $3 per kg to USA with delivery time around 30 days, and $6 per kg to Mexico with delivery time around 35 days, door to door.  All rates here subject to change without notice. Custom duty and tax is only an estimation based on the experience of America Ship.

Note:  the billable weight is the greater one of actual weight or dimensional weight.

Dimensional weight (kg)= Length  x  Width x Height (cm) / 5000, or

Dimensional weight (lbs)= Length  x  Width x Height (inch) / 139  

For example, suppose you have a box with length 45cm,  width 30cm,  height  25cm, and its actual weight is 4.5kg.  The dimensional weight will be 45 x 30 x 25/5000= 6.75kg.  Since 6.75kg > 4.5kg, the billable weight will be 6.75kg.
