# Costing of Carton Calculator

## What is Costing of Carton Calculator?

The Costing of Carton Calculator is a tool used in the packaging industry to determine the total cost of manufacturing cartons. It takes into account factors such as length, width, height, allowance, and per square liner rate to calculate the cost per carton.

Costing of Carton Calculator

## Formula of Costing of Carton Calculator

Costing of Carton=[{(Length + width + allowance) x (Width + Height + allowance)} x 2 ]/ 10000 x Per square liner rate

## How to Use the Costing of Carton Calculator?

1. Enter the length of the carton in inches.
2. Input the width of the carton in inches.
3. Provide the height of the carton in inches.
4. Enter the allowance for the carton in inches.
5. Input the per square liner rate.
6. Click on the “Calculate” button to get the total cost of the carton.

Say, the length of the carton is 60cm

width of the carton is 40cm

height of carton is = 30cm

price for 7ply liner rate= \$0.80/sqm (square meter)

### Carton cost calculation rule:

=[{(Length + width + allowance) x (Width + Height + allowance)} 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)

## Example

• Problems-1: A carton with Length 60cm, Width 40cm & Height 30cm, figure out a Cargo Measurement for 208 cartons?
• Formula = {length X width x height / X 1000000} X carton quantity

=(60 x 40 x 30 / 1000000) x 208

=14.976 CBM

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

Formula

= [(length + Width+ wastage) X (width+ height + wastage) x 2] / 10000 X carton quantity. (You can avoid wastage, if you wish)

= (80+60 +6) x (60+30 +4) x 2 /10000 x 120

=329 Square Meters.

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 the total cartons?

• Formula

=[{(Length + width + allowance) X (Width + Height + allowance)} X 2]    /10000 x carton quantity x Per square liner rate

=(60 +40 + 6) x (40 + 20 + 4) x 2 / 10000 x 150 x 0.20

= \$48.70
