LTL Freight Class Density Calculator

Our NOI freight class calculator guides you to the best matching freight class and shipment density. Density is just one factor used when classifying a freight shipment. To calculate density, you take the number of items and multiply by the dimensions and weight. As a rule of thumb, if your shipment has a low density or PCP (Pounds per Cubic Foot) than it most likely has a higher freight class rating and increased shipping cost.

For example, a shipment that weighs just over 1 pound per cubic foot and weighs exactly 100 pounds will be classified as freight class 300. Compared a shipment that is 10 pounds for cubic foot but weighs the same, the smaller shipment will cost more to ship because it occupies the same space as the heavier shipment.

There are other important factors used to determine the most accurate and final price quoted to you. Factors such as commodity, item type, actual dimensions and weight, and NMFC codes all affect your final quoted cost to ship freight.
