How To Calculate Cubic Metres (CBM) When Shipping

Determining Cubic Metres or CBM is the first step you should take in determining how to ship your cargo

CBM Calculator :

To calculate Cubic Meters , please enter your values in the highlighted box given below
  Length   Width   Height   Cubic Meter (m3)
Centimeters : X X =

Or            
Meters : X X

CBM Calculation Formula :

Length (centimeter) x Width (centimeter) x Height (centimeter) / 1,000,000 = Cubic meter (m3)
Length (meter) x Width (meter) x Height (meter) = Cubic meter (m3)
e.g. 35 cm x 35 cm x 45 cm = 0.055 cbm

Load ability of ocean containers

  • 20'ft container 26-28 CBM
  • 40'ft container 56-58 CBM
  • 40'ft HQ container 60-68 CBM
  • 45'ft HQ container about 78 CBM

CFT Calculator :

To calculate Cubic Feet , please enter your values in the highlighted box given below
  Length   Width   Height   Cubic feet (CFT)
Feet : X X =

Formula: ( Length" x Width" x Height" ) / 1728= Cubic feet (CFT)

KT Calculator :
