How to find out how many cartons fit in a container

### Convert the carton measurements that are listed in centimeters to CUBIC METERS?

There are two options to convert.  You can calculate the volume in cubic centimeters and then convert to cubic meters, or you can convert centimeters to meters and then calculate the volume.

Option # 1: As an example, if the carton measures 100 cm x 150 cm x 200 cm it will equal 3,000,000 cubic centimeters.  Since there are one million cubic centimeters per cubic meter, you have 3,000,000 divided by 1,000,000 which equals 3 cubic meters.

• Calculation: If in "centimeters" take L x W x H and then divide by 1,000,000 to get Cubic Meters.

Option # 2: The second option is that you could have converted to meters first.  In that case, 100 cm = 1.00 m; 150 cm = 1.50 m; and 200 cm = 2.00 m Therefore, the CBM volume is 1.00 meters x 1.50 meters x 2.00 meters = 3 cubic meters.

You may also have interest in checking the shipping definitions section.  In that area, you can find valuable educational material regarding the importing and exporting of apparel and textiles.  In addition, it would be a good idea to learn about Calculating Volumetric Weight and container sizes.

If you need help with your shipments, you may wish to consult a freight forwarder.  You can find them from our directory, or consult a freight forwarders association for possible suggestions.
