Feet44′ 5 5/8″7′ 8 5/8″8′ 10 1/4″

Tare Weight (Empty weight of container): 4,800 kg.
Max Weight (Maximum weight that can be filled in container): 27,700 kg.

To calculate CBM (cubic meter) for 45 feet container we will use following steps

  1. Get dimensions for the 45 feet container
  2. Convert length, width and height to meter if required
  3. multiply length, width and height to get CBM

CBM for 45 feet container : (13556 / 1000) x (2352 / 1000) x (2700 / 1000) = 86  cubic meter
Here we had divided length, width and height by 1000 to convert mm to meter.
