Using the CBM (cubic meters) field in Inventory Planner, you can add information about the volume of your product. This can be used to calculate volume of an order to fill a container for shipment.
CBM information can be entered in the corresponding field in Replenishment, or can be imported from a spreadsheet.
Add CBM directly to the CBM field
In Replenishment, click the gear icon at the top of the page.
Then search columns for CBM column and click the column name to add it to your report.
Then you'll have a field in that column where you can enter information.
Finally, save your changes.
Import CBM information
To import CBM information to Inventory Planner, prepare a spreadsheet with the following information:
- SKU or other unique identifying information like barcode or ID
- CBM - the cubic meters per individual unit of the variant
Each of these columns must have a column title. If they do not have a column title, the first line of data will be ignored during import. You can decide on the exact column name.
Next go to the Replenishment screen and click Import at the bottom of the screen. Then select 'Replenishment'.
Attach your spreadsheet by clicking 'Select file'.
Once your spreadsheet is attached, click on the dropdown with the CBM field to match up the column title with the corresponding data.
Finally, click Upload at the bottom of the pop-up to complete the import.
You will see results of your import including errors and error detail at the top of the pop-up. You can download a spreadsheet of any errors to correct for re-import.
