Determining cubic metres(CBM) is the first step you should take in determining how to ship your cargo.
Sometimes, large items with a light overall weight will be charged according to the space they take up on aircraft, eg. carnival headband, luggage. In these cases, volumetric weight, or dimensional 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 it's actual weight. The greater weight of the two is used to work out the price that air shipping company will charge you.
International volumetric weights are calculated using the formula
(Length x Width x Height in centimeters) / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms
For example :
If we have a carton with size 40 x 50 x 60 cm, and the gross weight(with products) is 20 kg.
Calculate the cubic metre (or cubic foot ), volume and quantity
per shipping container .

Please note that this calculator is intended only as a quick guide. In practice, actual loading will depend on accurate calculations based on how the items are loaded in the container and whether the dimensions of the cartons leave unusable space. Load factors will vary based on carton size and how they are stowed inside the containers.
