volume of fabric roll = \(\pi r^2 h\)

Where \(\pi\) is a constant its value is 3.14159 approx

\(r\) is the radius of the fabric roll cylinder

\(\)h\(\) is the height of fabric roll cylinder

Example:

1. cylinder radius (r) is 50 cm

2. height (h) of cylinder is 240 cm

we can calculate volume in cubic meter using this formula

volume in cubic cm = 3.14159 * 50^2 * 240 = 1,88,49,55,4

volume in cubic meter = 1,88,49,55,4/1,00,00,00 = 1.884954 or 1.89 cubic meter

In case of irregular shape please consider the largest side to get the volume for shipment.

]]>Steps to calculate volumetric weight

- Get length, width and height of box in centimetres
- Calculate volumetric weight by multiplying length, width and height and dividing by 5000 (305 if dimensions are in inches)
- If calculated volumetric weight is more than actual weight it will be used for shipment freight calculation

In some cases volumetric weight also calculated by dividing length, width and height by 4000 (245 if dimensions are in inches) or 6000 ( 366 if dimensions are in inches).

**For irregular shaped parcels voumetric weight will be calculated on the dimensions of minimum sized box in which this parcel will fit.**

40 feet standard container loadable volume is approximately

40 feet container dimensions are as follows

Dimensions | Length | Width | Height |

Outer | 12,192 mm | 2,438 mm | 2,438 mm |

Inner | 12,000 mm | 2,300 mm | 2,300 mm |

Tare Weight (Empty weight of container): **3,701 kg.**

Max Weight (Maximum weight that can be filled in container): **26,780 kg.**

To calculate CBM (cubic meter) for 40 feet container we will use following steps

- Get dimensions for the 40 feet container
- Convert length, width and height to meter if required
- multiply length, width and height to get CBM

CBM for 40 feet container : (12000 / 1000) x (2300 / 1000) x (2300 / 1000) = **63.48 cubic meter**

Here we had divided length, width and height by 1000 to convert mm to meter.

Please note that dimensions of container can vary as per manufacture implementation we had taken these dimensions to explain CBM calculation for 40 feet container.

]]>Recently we had added a new feature in CBM Calculator that allows you to add products without specifying container. CBM Calculator will auto calculate best fit container combination on the basis of product packages’ weight and volume.

This feature is ready to use and we welcome you to explore it and provide us your feedback to improve it further.

During the development of this feature we are very much aware of one limitation, which is Country-wise Weight and Volume Restriction. We know from our experience that containers weight and volume vary from country to country.

We will provide this feature in coming version in which user will be able to login in CBM Calculator and will setup its container weight and volume. It will be provided in paid CBM Calculator version, and it will cost you USD 100 /year.

Apart from this CBM Calculator’s free version will keep working and we will keep it improving. Using this post I would like to receive feedback of all CBM Calculator users about pricing, is it ok, less or more. Also share what other features you would like to see in CBM Calculator’s Free and Paid version.

Also as always please feel free in case you need some Customized Development in CBM Calculator.

Waiting for your responses.
