Shipping Container
Shipping Container Example:





A 40ft standard Shipping Container has Internal measurements of : Length 39ft 5inch, Width 7ft 6inch and Height 7ft 10inch, (Total Internal Cubic ft Volume = 2315.73 cu ft).

Hand Calculation:

* Convert Length in feet to inches 39ft = 39 * 12 = 468 inches
* Add on the specified 5 inches = 468 + 5 = 473 inches  -> Total Length = 473in

* Convert Width to Inches 7ft, 6in = 84 + 6in ->                   Total Width = 90in
* Convert Height to Inches 7ft,10in = 84 + 10in ->               Total Height = 94in

* Calculate the volume in cubic inches = 473 * 90 * 94           = 4001580 cubic inches
* Calculate the volume in Cubic feet = 4001580/(12*12*12)   = 2315.73 cu ft
