Calculate cubic meters
In order to fully utilize your transport vehicle, it is good to calculate cubic meters. Many carriers and shippers use this tool with the purpose to make their vehicle utilization even more efficient.
What does a cubic meter mean?
In very simple terms a cubic meter is the amount of space a load will occupy in your vehicle in length, width, and height.
How do you calculate cubic meters?
Calculating cubic meters (m3) is very easy.
- Length (in meter) X Width (in meter) X Height (in meter)
- We can define dimensions in Meter, Centimeter, Inch, Feet.
In our tool, you can fill in the dimensions in centimeters and we will convert that automatically to meters.
How many cubic meters is a truck?
The amount of cubic meters is really dependant on the type of truck/vehicle you own. Find below some examples in meters:
Truck example 1
Length 13.6 X Width 2.45 X Height 2.45 = 82 M3
Truck example 2
Length 13.6 X Width 2.45 X Height 2.70 = 90 M3
With our tool, you can now calculate the cubic meters of the load, cubic meters of your vehicle, and also calculate how many cubic meters will be available after you accept a load.
What is the difference between calculating cubic meters and calculating loading meters?
Cubic meters take into account the height of the load. This is especially important when the goods are stackable. For example, if a load is not stackable, a maximum of 33 euro pallets will fit in a truck. If the cargo is stackable, much more will fit in and the vehicle utilization will increase.
