## How is container CBM measured?

Length x Width x Height = CBM This is the formula used to measure your cargo volume in CBM (m³). Say, you have a carton that is 2 metres long, 2 metres wide and 2 metres high. Then, its volume is 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 m³.

## How many CBM is in a container?

20FT and 40FT Containers

Container Type | Internal Dimensions | Cubic Capacity |
---|---|---|

20FT General | L – 5.89M W – 2.35M H – 2.36M | 33 CBM |

20FT High Cube | L – 5.89M W – 2.35M H – 2.69M | 37 CBM |

40FT General | L – 12.05M W – 2.35M H – 2.36M | 66 CBM |

40FT High Cube | L – 12.05M W – 2.35M H – 2.69M | 76 CBM |

**How do you calculate CBM weight?**

Multiply the length x height x width in centimetres and divide the answer by 5,000. The result is the volumetric weight. The answer should be compared with the actual weight in kg. Whichever is the greater figure should be used to charge by the shipment company.

#### How do you calculate weight CBM?

Calculating CBM for air cargo is different than for ocean freight. The standard formula used is length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm) ÷ 6000 = volumetric weight (KG)/1 CBM ≈ 166.6666 KG.

#### How to calculate the size of a CBM container?

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

**How to calculate CBM for shipping ocean freight?**

If your shipping ocean freight, our calculator will help you choose the correct size container for your shipment. To calculate your shipment’s CBM measurement, you need to multiply three things: width, height, and length. The resulting number is the cubic volume that fits in your shipment.

## How to calculate the cubic meter ( CBM ) formula?

Cubic Meter (m3) 0.055 cbm. 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.

## What does CBM stand for in shipping category?

CBM, or cubic meter, is the freight volume of the shipment for domestic and international freight.
