• What size is 1 CBM?

CBM stands for “Cubic Meter,” and it is a unit of volume measurement in the metric system. One cubic meter (1 CBM) is equivalent to the volume of a cube that measures 1 meter on each side. In other words, it’s a cube with dimensions of 1 meter by 1 meter by 1 meter. To…

• How do I calculate CBM?

Use the formula: CBM = L × W × H Where L = Length of Cube/package/carton W = Width of Cube/package/carton H = Height of Cube/package/carton(Cubes are most used in shipments so first we had taken the Cube for CBM Calculation)  Cubic meters (CBM or m³) are a measure of volume used in the metric…

• What are CBM logistics?

CBM (cubic meter /m3) is the volume of shipment for logistics. First, we need to measure the Width, Height and Length of carton which needs to be ship. Then we multiply the Width (meter) x Height (meter) x Length (meter) to get the Cubic Meter (Volume for shipment for logistics.

• How to calculate CBM exactly?

Rectangular-shaped Cartons: Simply multiply the Width (meter) x Height (meter) x Length (meter) to get the cubic meter (m3) for carton. Cylindrical-shaped: Volume of Cylindrical-Shaped = pi * r2 * h In case of irregular shape please consider the largest side to get the volume for shipment.

• What is volumetric weight?

Some items with less density occupies more space than its actual weight. These types of items are charged according to the space they occupied. This volumetric or dimensional weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the shipment to ascertain which is greater. The higher weight is used to calculate the shipment cost.…
