HOW TO CALCULATE VOLUMES IN m3/cft

Small Size 0.38 x 0.25 x 0.35  =  0.033 m_ For 1 carton
How many cartons make 1 m_ 30 cartons = 0.033 x 30  =  0.99 m_ 30 cartons

Medium Size 0.43 x 0.43 x 0.39  =  0.072 m_ For 1 carton
How many cartons make 1 m_ 15 cartons = 0.072 x 15  =  1.08 m_ 15 cartons

Large Size 0.51 x 0.41 x 0.41  =  0.085 m_ For 1 carton
How many cartons make 1 m_ 12 cartons = 0.085 x 12  =  1.02 m_ 12 cartons
 
Notes: 1 m = 35 cft , 2 m = 70 cft , 3 m = 105 cft




DIM WEIGHT CALCULATOR FOR AIR SHIPMENTS

Dimensional weight, also call "dim" weight, is used because the space a package takes on an aircraft may cost more than the package's actual weight. You should calculate dimensional weight on every shipment, compare that to its actual weight, and use the greater of the two to determine your shipping cost, using the the formulas below.

For International Shipments:
Length x Widht x Height (cubic inches) / 166 = Dimensional Weight.

Example:
30" x 24" x 22" = 15,840/166 = 96 Ibs (round up to the nearest pound)

The Dim weight is given in pounds.
