Depending of how large, heavy, fragile, easy to handle or complex your less than a truckload (i.e. LTL) freight shipment is, it should be priced fairly. Most US carriers require NMFC class based on density calculation for proper description of your goods on the bill of lading and to ensure correct pricing.

  1. This density calculation is just one of the steps in determining correct NMFC class for your freight.
    Visit our Freight Class Calculator tool here to learn more about the whole process.
  2. Measure your shipment weight and exact dimensions in inches: height, width and depth. Round up to the nearest inch.
    All you need to do is to correctly weight and measure your freight before contacting us. Make sure your measurements include all packaging like skids, pallets, crating, etc. Round your measurements up to the nearest inch. For multiple pieces, make separate measurements.
  3. Call Freightera Client Care team (800) 886-4870 Ext. 1 or use our online chat with questions, or to get a free consultation and a list of correct NMFC codes and classes for shipping your products.
    If you have shipped the same product with the same weight and dimensions before and know your NMFC information, use it in quoting and booking your order.

You don’t need to know how density formula works, but here is what it does for you.

  1. It multiplies 3 dimensions of your shipment to get total cubic inches.
  2. It divides total cubic inches by 1,728 to calculate the total cubic feet.
  3. It divides total weight of your shipment by total cubic feet to get the density in Pounds per Cubic Foot (pcf).
