How do I calculate the loading metres?
You calculate the number of loading meters using the following calculation formula:
Length x Width = (outcome) / 2.4 (in metres)
There is an exception to this however, that when the goods are wider than 1.2 meters, the length in meters is automatically used as the loading metres.
How many loading metres can each vehicle carry?
The number of loading metres on a normal trailer is 13.6 loading metres.
The number of loading meters of a combi truck is 2 bodies each capable of carrying 8 loading meters.
The number of loading meters of an LZV truck is 13.6 loading meters (normal trailer) and 8 loading meters (combi container) giving you a total capacity of 21.6 loading metres.
