How To Calculate Cubic Metres (CBM) When Shipping

Determining cubic metres(CBM) is the first step you should take in determining how to ship your cargo.

  • CBM Calculation Formula :
    Length (centimeter) x Width (centimeter) x Height (centimeter) / 1,000,000 = Length meter x Width meter x Height meter = Cubic meter (m3) .
    e.g. 35 cm x 35 cm x 45 cm = 0.055 cbm
  • CFT Formula : Length" x Width" x Height" = ? divided 1728 = Cubic feet (CFT)
  • KT Formula : Pounds divided by 2204.62 = Kiloton (Kt)

Calculate the volumetric weight of your shipment

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 below:
(Length x Width x Height in centimeters) / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms

Calculating the CBM

Calculate the cubic metre (or cubic foot ), volume and quantity per shipping container .
