CALCULATE CUBIC METER OR CBM BY YOURSELF.
Cubic Meter Also Called CBM.
If you doing business or dealing with job or you want to ship something the knowledge about the CBM is most important for you. I see most of the Business Peoples or others they don’t know how to calculate the CBM. They let them others how they calculate for you. Others may calculate favoring their business. You can save much money if you know how to calculate it.
It will be better if we discuss with an example. Suppose you want to ship 50 cartons each carton size is
Must know the formula to calculate CBM is as under
CBM = W x H x L
W = WIDTH OF CARTON
H = HIGHT OF CARTON
L = LENGTH OF CARTON
Please be remember the W, H, L, must be in Meter. If it’s not in meter need convert in the meter. In our example the W, H, L is in cm so according to international standard 1 Meter is equal to 100cm. so we need to divide by 100 to get result in Meter.
Height 20 cm = 20/100 = 0.20 M
Width 30 cm = 30/100 = 0.30 M
Length 40 cm = 40/100 = 0.40 M
TIP: If you have measurement in CM and need to convert it to Meter the easiest way to move 2 decimal places. 20 CM after moving 2 decimal it will become 0.20 M.
Now put values in the formula:
CBM = W x H x L
CBM = 0.20 X 0.30 X 0.40 = 0.024 CBM
So now your 1 Carton is equal to 0.024 CBM. It also means that your 1 carton will occupy 0.024 CBM space.
4th and Final Step:
If 1 carton will occupy 0.024 CBM the 50 cartons will occupy:
0.024 x 50 = 1.2CBM
That it, now you know that your total volume of shipment in Cubic Meter is 1.2 CBM.
Hope it will be helpful for you.
