 ### KARGO HACİMLERİ NASIL HESAPLANIR?

The place that an object tangibly occupies within a certain area is called volume. Volume is a very important issue in transportation. When planning any transport organization, the volumes of the goods to be transported must be calculated depending on the capacity of the vehicle to transport the product or products. This calculation is necessary to prevent various accidents that may occur during transport. In cases where the correct volume calculation is not made, the product or products may be damaged. Of course, this is also an undesirable situation. So, how are cargo volumes calculated? Let's examine it together. Volume calculation requires different expressions for various subjects. To calculate the correct volume, it is necessary to know a few terms. For example, knowing the equivalent of the base word is necessary to know how many cubic meters an item will have. In order to determine the volumes of liquid substances, the liquid must be transferred to a container. These containers are usually barrels. The barrel is filled to the brim with liquid, then emptied and its volume is calculated. Because it is cost-free, sometimes mathematical calculations can be made. In order to make this calculation, the base area and height of the object whose volume is to be calculated must be known. Shapes of objects can affect calculations. Knowledge of geometric shapes makes it easier to calculate the volumes of objects correctly. Let's look at the calculations of rectangles, spheres, and boxes. The same formula is used for calculating the volumes of these objects. The base area and the height are multiplied. Regardless of whether it is a sphere or a square, the product of the base area and the height gives the volume of the object. For rectangles, the product of all corners is equal to volume. For spheres and parcels, the circle area and height should be multiplied.

## HOW IS VOLUME CALCULATED IN AIRLINE TRANSPORTATION?

The first step in volume calculation in airline transportation is to find the volumetric weight. After the weight of the load planned to be transported is found, the cost is determined by calculating the volume and volumetric weight it covers. In airline transportation, the volume of the load is more important than the weight. For this, cargo areas are tried to be evaluated in the best way. In cargoes that are tried to be placed within a limited area, the internal shape and characteristics of the aircraft are very important. To summarize, the weight of the cargo is not very important in airline transportation. The important thing here is the volume of the load; that is, where it takes up. If the load takes up too much space, its cost will be high.
