3 different containers are used in normal shipment.

  1. Standard container- 20ft: L 5.9* W2.34* H 2.38 meter, the calculated volume is 28~29 m³
  2. Standard container- 40ft:L 12* W 2.34* H2.38 meter, the calculated volume is 57~59 m³
  3. High Cubes Container - 40ft::L 12* W 2.34* H2.68 meter, the calculated volume is 66~68 m³

3 factors will directly affect the actual load volume

  1. Standard container- 20ft: 28m³
  2. Standard container- 40ft:57m³
  3. High Cubes Container - 40ft:67m³

So the carton volume smaller, the container cubage usage will be higher.
