## How to calculate corrugated box price

### Do you imagine that you can calculate the corrugated box with a simple equation?

Do you know you can calculate the cost by yourself? 1. You need to know the exact paper specification like A=A (160/90/50/90/130), which means the grammage of each layer (5 layers).
2. You determine the suitable gram of the carton. In the beginning, you can calculate the products you would pack on the box. Then, you need to know the weight of each unit inside. Also, you should determine the kind of transportation. You are now ready to get the exact specifications.
3. The second step is to determine carton price type, in the shape of price /thousand square inches; we represent it as P/TSQI.

### The carton price formula:

CARTON COST = (Length+Width+5) x (Width+Height+3) x 2 x 1.55 x P/TSQI/10000

• A carton has specification A: 45x35x30 (cm)
• Paper board: A=A (130/90/50/90/130),
• Carton factory quoted A= A price: 2.25
• Carton price is: 4.03
• Now you have the easy way to any cost determination you need.
