Cargo arriving at Meest’s Lviv warehouse can be delivered to any city in Ukraine either:

FCL service is available to any port.
LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD (LCL)
Meest-America ships consolidated cargo in containers with freight and parcels. Containerized cargo sent by ocean freight is charged by cargo volume or actual physical weight depending on the type of cargo. Air freight rates are calculated accordingly.
To determine the cost of shipping, the greater of the actual weight or volume weight is utilized.
The following is the formula for the volume weight in lbs.
Length (inches) x Width (inches) x Height (inches) / 139
