Cubic Feet Calculator For Shipping (Inches and Pounds)

Carton Dimensions : L * W * H inches
Carton Gross Weight : lbs , Carton Quantity : ctns

Cargo is commonly calculated using a combination of volume (total space in cubic feet or meters) and payload (total weight). A cubic foot is the space occupied by a cube with 1 foot width, length and height. You can calculate the total cubic feet of a cargo shipment by calculating the cubic feet of each item and adding them together.

How To Calculate Cubic Metres (CBM) When Shipping

Determining Cubic Feet(CFT) or Cubic Metres(CBM) is the first step you should take in determining how to ship your cargo.

  • CFT Formula : Length (in) x Width (in) x Height (in) = ? divided 1728 = Cubic feet (CFT) (calculate cube feet)
  • CBM Calculation Formula :
    Length (cm) x Width (cm) x Height (cm) / 1,000,000 = Length (meter) x Width (meter) x Height (meter) = Cubic meter (m³). e.g. 35 cm x 35 cm x 45 cm = 0.055 cbm (calculate cubic meter)
  • 1 cubic meter = 35.3146 cubic feet (cbm & cft converter)
  • 1 lb = 0.45359237 kg, 1 kg = 2.20462262 lbs.(convert kilograms to pounds)

How to use this cube feet calculator

  1. Take a ruler to measure the actual size of outer carton.
  2. Fill the blanks of dimensions (length,width,height)
  3. Fill the blank of carton gross weight
  4. Fill the blank of carton quantity
  5. if you prefer use Metric unit CM and KG, try to use CBM calculator for shipping (calculate CBM volume from cm)

Calculate the volumetric weight of your shipment

Sometimes, large items with a light overall weight can be charged according to the space they take up on aircraft. In these cases, Volumetric Weight, or dimensional (Dim) 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 its actual weight. The greater weight of the two is used to work out the price that we charge you.

International Volumetric Weights are calculated using the formula below:

(Length x Width x Height in centimeters) / 5000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms

Calculating the CBM

Calculate the cubic metre (or cubic foot ), volume and quantity per shipping container .

Here’s a simple and fast way of doing it to get an approximate quantity.

Load ability of ocean containers

  • 20'ft container 26-28 CBM
  • 40'ft container 56-58 CBM
  • 40'ft HQ container 60-62 CBM

Please note that this calculator is intended only as a quick guide. 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.
