Use our online CBM calculator that helps you to calculate container volume and weight. Make your consignment CBM calculations swift and accurate with this smart cubic meter calculator.

Here’s how you can use this CBM calculator with just a few clicks.

**Input:**

- Select mode of tool first
- Now enter the dimensions (Length, Width, Height) quantity
- Hit the calculate button

**Output:**

- Consignment CBM calculation

**Cubic meter calculation refers to the measurement of the volume of the shipment.**

Moreover, you can also utilize another freight class calculator to estimate the cost of your shipment.

Our CBM calculator online uses the following formula to calculate the number of boxes that may fit in your given volume of container.

\(CBM = Length×Width×Height\)

Now if there are more than one single carton there in your shipment, then you can also use the following equation to determine the total volume of it:

\(Total Volume = CBM × Number of Cartons\)

Volumetric Weight:Except to calculate CBM online only, you can also determine the volumetric weight by following the formula as under:

\(CBM = \dfrac{Length×Width×Height}{5000}\)

**Example:**

How to calculate CBMS of a container with the following dimensions:

\(Length = 23ft, Width = 12ft, Height = 8ft\)

**Solution:**

Here we have:

\(CBM = Length×Width×Height\)

\(CBM = 23×12×8\)

\(CBM = 2208 m^{3}\)

To determine the answer in other metric units, we better recommend you utilising our best cubic meters calculator.

The standard cubic meter volume for various containers are given in the following table:

Container Size | Dimensions | Capacity | Suggested Load |
---|---|---|---|

20ft | 5.9 m x 2.35 m x 2.35 m | 32-33 CBM | 26-28 CBM |

40ft | 12.03 m x 2.35 m x 2.39 m | 67-68 CBM | 50-55 CBM |

40hq | 12.03 m x 2.35 m x 2.69 m | 76-77 CBM | 55-60 CBM |

45hq | 12.5 m x 2.45 m x 2.69 m | 82-83 CBM | 70-75 CBM |

Yes! Where CBM is the volume measurement in only cubic meters, the volume can also be determined in other metric units. And to better calculate cubic meter of a package, you may better be subject to our CBM calculator online.
