5. My shipment is 2kg in weight only. Why am I charged for 5kg?
There is an actual weight and a volumetric weight for each shipment. If the volumetric weight is higher than the actual weight, the freight charge will be calculated based on the volumetric weight. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), for shipments delivered by air, the volumetric weight is calculated by the formula: length×width×height (cm) ÷ 5,000 (cm³/kg). SF Express helps customers save more by applying the volumetric weight factor of 6,000 (cm³/kg).
6. How will you deal with the shipment if it fails to be delivered because the consignee is out-of-reach?
We will make re-delivery attempt or the consignee can follow the instruction of 'Delivery Absence Notice' to arrange free re-delivery. If delivery attempt fails again or the consignee cannot be contacted, we will notify and seek advice from the shipper.

8. Why does the courier unpack the shipments to check every time?
SF Express unpacks in order to check the content and quantity of the shipments, which is a responsible act not only to the customers, but also to ensure the safety and timely arrival of the shipments. As some commodities might do harm to other shipments during transportation, or transportation of some commodities is restricted by the government (e.g. explosive or inflammable goods). Under air transport regulations, customs authorities and airport security force will check on all air shipments. If restricted or prohibited items are found, customs authorities will detain or even destroy the shipments. Our act of checking aims to protect customers' interest from avoidable troubles or lost.
