How Many Bins Fill A Container?

Ever tried to determine what number of pallets or what number of containers will match right into a container?

Let me present you a easy manner which can help you in calculating what number of containers

you require to ship at a time. What you’ll need to know prior to creating the calculation is

the inner dimensions of a container.

I’m going to focus on the 20ft Normal Function and the 40ft Normal Function


Inside Dimensions of 20ft GP (6 metre dry container)

Size x Width x Peak

590cm x 235cm x 239cm

Inside Dimensions of 40ft GP (12 metre dry container)

Size x Width x Peak

1203cm x 235cm x 239cm

[For this exercise to work all your pallets or boxes must be of equal size]


When you have a pallet 110cm (Size) x 110cm (Width) x 120cm (Peak) and you might be

packing a 20ft GP container.

Divide your Size of pallet into Size of Container

590 div 110 = 5, 36

Divide your Width of pallet into Width of Container

235 div 110 = 2, 13

Divide your Peak of pallet into Peak of Container

239 div 120 = 1, 99

(Drop the numbers after the comma)

Now multiply your solutions

5 x 2 x 1

= 10

Due to this fact 10 Pallets will match right into a 20ft GP container.

*You are able to do the identical calculation for a 40ft GP container (12 metre dry)

Now that you recognize precisely what number of containers you’ll require to ship, your costing per cargo will likely be far more correct than a mere guessing recreation. With this in thoughts, I want you each little bit of success in your future shipments!
