Disclaimer: We (CBM Calculator LLC) do not have any business deal with any transport/shipment company. The service (CBM Calculator) is available only for volume calculation of shipments. We do not gurantee the result obtained from the use of service will be effective, accurate or reliable.

All the calculations performed on the basis of below provided container dimensions and in case you need different dimension of container or you want to use different volumetric formula, please use our Android App .

CBM Calculation Formula

  • Length (in meter) X Width (in meter) X Height (in meter) = Cubic meter (m3)
  • We can define dimensions in Meter, Centimeter, Inch, Feet.

While creating a shipment record CBM Calculator display occupied weight and volume percentage of packets inside a container. CBM Calculator also allows the user to pre-define products and use them as per the requirement. In CBM Calculator user can define different types of Shipment Containers. By default CBM Calculator have details of STANDARD 20 FT, STANDARD 40 FT HIGH CUBE 40 FT Containers.

What is Volumetric Weight?

Large items with a light overall weight are charged according to the space they occupied.
In these cases, Volumetric Weight is used to calculate the shipment freight cost.
International Volumetric Weights are calculated using the formula below:

Length X Width X Height in centimetres / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms.

Multiply the length x height x width in centimetres and divide the answer by 5,000. The result is the volumetric weight. The answer should be compared with the actual weight in kg. Whichever is the greater figure should be used to charge by the shipment company.

For above calculation we had used following container dimensions

Container / Dimensions Length (cm) Width (cm) Height (cm)
20 FT Container 589 230 230
40 FT Container 1200 230 230
40 FT HIGH CUBE Container 1200 230 260
