  • pg 1
									M3 size (cubic meter) of a vehicle is sum of length x height x width. Each and every
vehicle have its own M3 size. The cubic meter of your vehicle is calculated by
measuring the exterior dimension of the vehicle and multiplying width x length x
height. Every vehicle maker mentions m3 size of a vehicle in specification.

The M3 of the vehicle is used by the shipping company for RO-RO shipment to
calculate the cost of transporting the vehicle to the destination port. Importers or
individual buyers must know how to calculate freight charges while importing any
used cars to their final delivery port from Japan or any other country.
