Freight Density Calculator
Everything You Need to Know About Freight Class
Determine Density, Identify Freight Class, Avoid Surprises
As one of the four main characteristics used to evaluate a commodity – alongside stowability, ease or difficulty of handling and liability – correct calculation of your LTL shipment's density, and the selection of the corresponding freight class, can help you avoid unwanted surprises on your freight shipping invoice.
Some classes are density-based – meaning the ratio of weight to dimensions will influence the freight shipping cost. Typically, the lower the freight density, the higher the class and vice-versa. By calculating the correct density using our freight density calculator, you can be on your way to correctly classifying your freight and likely avoiding a costly reclassification or delay.
