* The Free Trade Agreement between Chile and USA, requires that the products be manufactured in USA. If the product has a value up to USD $2500.00 the vendor only has to include on the invoice the text “MADE IN USA”. If the product value is above $2500.00 it is required that the provider attach a certificate of origin to merchandise.
According to international standards (IATA) those goods that are lightweight and high volume, should be calculated with the volumetric weight. If the weight is larger than the volume, the weight will be used to calculate the cost of the shipment. If weight volume is larger than the weight, the weight volume will be used to calculate the cost of the shipment.
You may calculate weight volume by using this equation
Weight Volume in Lbs. Weight volume in KG
L x W x H ÷ 166
Divide result by 2.2
