CBM (Cubic meter)

CBM (Cubic meter)

CBM (Cubic meter), is a measurement of volume (one cubic meter is measured as one meter wide by one meter long by one meter high)

Shippers use CBM to calculate chargeable weight (see under chargeable weight). 

How is the CBM calculated? 

You should multiply its length, width, and height (in meters). If your cargo has different sized items, you should repeat this formula for each size. After you calculate all sizes,  add up the volumes. 

You can also find online calculators to assist in calculating your cargo’s CBM.
