Determining cubic metres(CBM) is the first step you should take in determining how to ship your cargo.
Sometimes, large items with a light overall weight can be charged according to the space they take up on aircraft. In these cases, Volumetric Weight, or dimensional (Dim) weight, is used to calculate the shipment cost. It is recommended that you calculate the Volumetric Weight for every shipment that you send, then compare this to its actual weight. The greater weight of the two is used to work out the price that we charge you.
International volumetric weights are calculated using the formula
(Length x Width x Height in centimeters) / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms
Calculate the cubic metre (or cubic foot ), volume and quantity
per shipping container .
Want to get a quick and easy calculation of how many of your product(s) will fit in a shipping container?
Here’s a simple and fast way of doing it to get an approximate quantity.
Please note that this calculator is intended only as a quick guide. In practice, actual loading will depend on accurate calculations based on how the items are loaded in the container and whether the dimensions of the cartons leave unusable space. Load factors will vary based on carton size and how they are stowed inside the containers.
