1. The Direct Ship Fee
We shall charge the below Direct Ship fees based on the volumetric weight of a shipment which is based on a combination of dimensions and shipping weight of the products.
The Direct Ship Fee is charged upon shipping the order to the customer, and
is not refunded if the order is returned.
Follow the below listed guidelines to determine the Direct Ship Fee for each of your items:
1. First, start by selecting the classification (standard parcel or oversize) of the packaging that will hold your shipment based on the dimensions using the Classification Tier table.
2. Next, calculate your shipment’s shipping weight by using the below formula, then round it to the nearest 50g:
Shipping weight = the shipment's physical weight + the packaging weight of a particular classification
3. Ensure that this shipping weight isn’t above the maximum shipping weight of the classification in the size-tier table. If the shipping weight is higher, then the next classification tier will apply.
4. Finally, select the FBP Direct Ship Fee that will apply to your shipment based on the packaging classification, and the weight slab that’s equivalent to your shipping weight.

A fee that applies to each shipment that is shipped to a customer. The value of the Direct Ship fee is based on a combination of the dimensions and shipping weight of the product.
|Size tier||Weight Slab||Pickup fee per shipment (AED)||Drop off fee per shipment (AED)|
|Standard Parcel||<=0.25 kg||14.0||12.0|
|>0.25 kg & <=0.50 kg||14.5||12.5|
|>0.50 kg & <=1.0 kg||15.0||13.0|
|>1.0 kg & <=1.5 kg||15.5||13.5|

|Each additional 1kg till 12 Kg||Additional 1 AED per Kg||Additional 1 AED per Kg|
|>1.0 kg & <=2.0 kg||19.5||17.5|
|Each additional 1 kg till 10 kg||Additional 1 AED per Kg||Additional 1 AED per Kg|
|>10 kg & <=15 kg||32.0||30.0|

FBP Direct Ship Fee Calculation Example:
Dimensions: 17.4 x 8.81 x 2.8 cm
Shipment's physical weight: 0.32 kg
Based on the dimensions, this is a standard parcel which has 0.10 kg of packaging weight. The corresponding shipping weight is:
Shipping Weight = Shipment's physical weight + Packaging Weight = (0.32+0.10) kg = 0.42 kg (approximately 0.5 kg)
Therefore, this is under the 500 g maximum shipping weight for standard parcel.
|Direct Ship Fee||Weight Slab||Pickup fee per shipment (AED)||Drop off fee per shipment (AED)|
|Standard Parcel||>0.25 kg & <=0.50 kg||14.5||12.5|
