Carton Consumption & Costing:

Carton cost calculation rule

= [{(Length + width + allowance) X (Width + Height + 4)} X 2] / 10000 X Per square liner rate
= [{(60 + 40 + 6) X (40 + 30 + 4)} X 2] / 10000 X \$0.80
= [{(106) X (74)} X 2] / 10000 X \$0.80
= {(7844 X 2)} / 10000 X \$0.80
= 15688 / 10000 X \$0.80
= 1.5688 X \$0.80
= \$1.25504 / pc (Per carton rate)

For clear concept we can see the following short problems and solutions about cartoon consumption and costing.

Problems-1: A carton with Length 60cm, Width 40cm & Height 30cm, figure out a Cargo Measurement for 208 cartons?

Answer: 60 x 40 x 30 / 1000000 x 208 = 14.976 CBM

Formula: length X width X height / 1000000 X carton quantity

Problems-2: A carton of 7 Ply, Length 80cm, Width 60cm, Height 30cm, total carton 120 pcs, find out carton measurement in square meter ?

Answer: (80 + 60 + 6) x (60 + 30 + 4) x 2 / 10000 x 120 =329 Square Meters.

Formula: (length + width + wastage) X (width + height + wastage) x 2 / 10000 X carton quantity. (You can avoid wastage, if you wish)

Problems-3: 3 ply carton’s per square (100 x 100) meter’s rate is USD 0.20, carton’s length is 60cm, width 40cm, height 30cm, total required carton quantity is 150 Pcs, figure out price of total cartons?

Answer: (60 + 40 + 6) x (40 + 20 + 4) x 2 / 10000 x 150 x 0.20 = 48.70 USD.

Formula: (length + width + wastage) X (width + height + wastage) x 2 / 10000 X carton quantity X price
