 # First-rate Freight Services To Measure the Cubic Volume of Freight Cubing is the term given to measuring the size of a freight consignment.
The Hunter Express Standard Cubic Conversion is 1 Cubic Metre = 333 Kilograms.
Example 1: Cubing a Carton
 Width = 40 cm (or 0.4 of a metre) Height = 35 cm (or 0.35 of a metre) Length = 65 cm (or 0.65 of a metre) Actual Weight = 15 kg Multiply the height x length x width = m3 (cubic measurement) = 0.35 x 0.65 x 0.4 = 0.091m3 To convert 0.091m3 to a weight in kilograms Multiply 0.091m3 x 333 (standard cubic conversion) = 30.30 kg 30.30 kg is greater than the actual weight of 15 kg Example 2: Cubing a Pallet Width = 1.2 m Width = 1.2 m Length = 1.2 m Actual Weight = 450 kg Multiply the height x length x width = m3 (cubic measurement) = 1.9 x 1.2 x 1.2 = 2.736m3 To convert 2.736m3 to a weight in kilograms Multiply 2.736m3 x 333 (standard cubic conversion) = 911.08 kg 911.08 kg is greater than the actual weight of 450 kg Example 3: Cubing an Odd Shaped Item
 Width = 1.4 m Height = 1.6 m Length = 1.3 m Actual Weight = 580 kg Multiply the height x length x width = m3 (cubic measurement) = 1.6 x 1.3 x 1.4 = 2.912m3 To convert 2.912m3 to a weight in kilograms Multiply 2.912m3 x 333 (standard cubic conversion) = 969.69 kg 969.69 kg is greater than the actual weight of 580 kg
