Important tips**
Then, garment merchandiser should calculate ply board 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 readymade garments industry.

Carton costing (Per pc carton box),

Now, one example is enough to remove your all the confusions from the above discussion.

Example:

Suppose, a 5 ply carton having length 65cm, width 45cm and height 12cm. Now calculate Carton box costings for 400pcs carton box. (where, 5 ply board rate is $0.65 per square meter).

Solution:

Here,

Carton length – 65cm,
Width of carton- 45cm,
Carton height – 12cm,
5 ply board rate per square meter- $0.65

Total carton-400pcs.

So,

Ply board 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),
= Ply board consumption (Per pc carton in square meter) × ply board rate (per sq. meter)
= 1.41 × 0.65
=$0.92 per pc carton box.

So,
