Knowing what to expect when shipping Ocean Cargo as FCL (Full Container load)

01 

Understanding Dimensional Weight as CBM - (Cubic Meter rate)

To calculate CBM (cubic meters), you need to measure the length, width, and height of the object or space in meters. Then, multiply the three measurements together to get the total volume in cubic meters.

However to make it easier, we can also calculate from Inches or Centimeters

Inches Calculation:

Another way to perform the calculation is to keep the dimensions in inches and divide by 61023.8

 

Centimeters Calculation

Another way to perform the calculation is to keep the dimensions in inches and divide by 1000000

Meters

(L) x (W) x (H) 

1.2192 x 1.016x 1.4732  = 1.83 CBM

INCHES

(L) x (W) x (H) / 61023.8
48 x 40 x 58 / 61023.8 = 1.83 CBM

Centimeters

(L) x (W) x (H) / 1000000

121.92 x 101.6 x 147.32 / 1000000 = 1.83 CBM

IncoTerms - Understanding Terminology

 Incoterms are a set of standardized trade terms used in international commercial transactions. They define the responsibilities of buyers and sellers for the delivery of goods under sales contracts. 
 

The following seven incoterms can be used for both ocean and air shipping:

  • EXW – Ex Works

  • CPT – Carriage Paid To

  • CIP – Carriage and Insurance Paid To
