How to Calculate Carton Costing in Apparel Industry?
Carton costing is very much important in garments merchandising. Carton costing is not a tough task that we have normally seemed. This article has shown an easy method for calculating carton costings in the apparel industry.
Carton Costing Calculation Method in Garments Industry:
Before calculating carton costing, a garments merchandiser should confirm the following information:
- Carton length in cm,
- Carton width in cm,
- Carton height in cm.
Then, the garment merchandiser should calculate plyboard consumption for the carton box and multiply with ply board rate.
Now by using the below formula, a garment merchandiser can easily calculate carton box costing in the readymade garments industry.
Carton costing (Per pc carton box),
= Plyboard consumption (Per pc carton in square meter) × plyboard rate (per sq. meter)………… (1)
Now, one example is enough to remove all the confusion from the above discussion.
Suppose, a 5 ply carton having a length of 65cm, a width of 45cm, and a height of 12cm. Now calculate Carton box costings for 400pcs carton box. (where 5 ply board rate is $0.65 per square meter).
Carton length – 65cm,
Width of carton- 45cm,
Carton height – 12cm,
5 ply board rate per square meter- $0.65
Plyboard consumption (Per pc carton in square meter),
= 1.41 square meter per pc carton.
Now, from (1), we get-
Carton costings (Per pc carton box),
= Plyboard consumption (Per pc carton in square meter) × plyboard rate (per sq. meter)
= 1.41 × 0.65
=$0.92 per pc carton box.
For 1pc carton, carton box costings stand at =$0.92.
For 400pcs carton, carton box costings will be (0.92 × 400) = $368.
