Measurement Conversion:
Length

1 m    = 3.28 ft
Volume

1 cft   = 0.02832 cbm
Weight
1 kg = 2.2046 lb
1 lb = 0.4536 kg
How to calculate the volume for my shipment?
Take the measurements of the package and multiply the 3 dimensions,
L x W x H, for example:
20" x 35" x 49" = 34300 cubic inches
34300/1728 (conversion index) = 19.85 cft
19.85 cft/35.53= 0.562 cbm

Airlines convert chargeable weight by multiply cbm by 166.7:
0.562 cbm x 166.7 = 93.68 kg (chargeable weight if your shipment's actual weight is less than 93.185 kg)
