# How do you calculate cargo?

## How do you calculate cargo?

Shipment size by volumetric weight (single shipment) This is calculated by multiplying the volume with the volumetric factor (typical value is 0.25 tonnes/m3). The result is compared with the actual weight of the shipment to ascertain which is greater; the higher weight is used to determine the allocation factor.

### How is cargo calculated in tanker?

We need to convert the volumes to the weight of the cargo in each tank. We need the density of the cargo to convert the volume of cargo to the weight. And as the density also changes with the temperature, we would need the density of the cargo at the cargo temperature to convert the observed volume to weight.

#### How is cargo shipping calculated?

With draft survey we measures the initial weight (displacement) of the ship and it measures the final weight (displacement) of the ship after loading. The difference plus all the weights that were taken out (like ballast) will be the cargo loaded.

**How do you calculate freight ton km?**

First, it calculates the total cost of transportation as the multiplication of distance by price per kilometer. Second, it calculates the number of tonne-kilometres as the multiplication of distance by mass of cargo.

**What is total calculated volume?**

Total Calculated Volume (TCV) is the gross standard volume plus the free water measured at the temperature & pressure prevailing. The Volume Correction Factor (VCF) is the factor depending on the oil type, density or its equivalent and temperature which corrects oil volumes to the Standard Reference Temperature (s).

## How is deadweight cargo capacity calculated?

To calculate the Deadweight tonnage figure, take the weight of a vessel that is not loaded with cargo and subtract that figure from the weight of the vessel loaded to the point where it is immersed to the maximum safe depth.

### How is ship trim calculated?

As specified earlier, the draft measured is at the location of the LCF of the vessel. The following picture depicts the mean draft and the total trim of the vessel. We can see that the total trim is t = tf – ta which is measured over the length between perpendiculars (LBP) of the vessel.

#### How do you calculate draft?

Final Draft Calculation – Fore and Aft Mean (FAm) = (Fcd + Acd) / 2 = (10.796 + 11.196) / 2 = 21.992 /2 = 10.996 M. – Mean of Mean Draft (MM) = (Mcd + FAm / 2) = (10.965 + 10.996) /2 = 21.961 / 2 = 10.9805 M. – Quarter Mean (MMM) = (MM + Mcd) /2 = (10.9805 + 10.965) /2 = 21.9455 /2 = 10.97275 M. = 10.973 M.

**What CBM means?**

cubic meter

What is CBM? CBM (cubic meter) is a measurement of volume one meter wide by one meter long by one meter high. CBM is used to calculate chargeable weight.

**How is slip of ship calculated?**

Soln: Slip (percent) = Engine distance – ship’s distance/ Engine’s distance X 100. Engine distance = Pitch X RPM X 60 X 24 / 1852.
