shipping dimensions for Solar Powered Bible

Given that the outside dimensions of the box with the sleeve will be:
  • width 4.45 inches
  • height 7.63 inches
  • depth 2.38 inches
Hense the product is  90.8 cubic inches or:
90.8 cubic inches/1 unit *  cf / 1728 ci = .05 cf/ unit

30 is a good figure for a master carton for this product.
Hense the master carton might be approximately:
  • width 13.5 inches
  • height 15.5 inches
  • depth 12 inches
Hense the master carton is 1.48 cf

A 40 foot container holds 2390 cf
A 20 foot container holds 1150 cf
I have that from Stonepoath Logistics, who should know.

Therefore:
  • 48,445 units fit in a 40 ft container
  • 23,310 units fit in a 20 ft container
Weight:
  • The packaged product will weigh 7.8oz or .49 lb
  • 30 packaged products in the master carton weighs just under 15 lbs
  • the box weighs approx 1 lb
  • master carton weighs approx 16 lbs

Arthur says
These numbers are accurate to the best of my knowledge. You never fill a container completely, so you won't know exactly how many cartons can actually fit the container until the first time they load it. It would be appropriate to call this 22,000 and 44,000 for 20 and 40 foot respectively.

QVC: I am not sure why this is here. It is more efficient to ship them in master cartons and the 30 pack should not be a problem. You do need to clarify item labelling as per QVC requirement. They are very, very specific. Violations are expensive.
