  • Freight class calculator.

    Freightquote has developed a freight class calculator you can use as a guide to determine a shipment's volume and density.

    Density is one factor used to calculate freight class. It's based on the number of pieces in the shipment and the shipment's dimensions and weight, ranging from 50 to 1. A shipment with a lower density typically has a higher freight classification.

    In addition to an estimated density, our freight density calculator will provide you with a recommended class for your shipment. The freight class chart below is an abbreviated scale you can use to classify shipments.

    Less than 1
    class 400
    1 but less than 2
    class 300
    2 but less than 4
    class 250
    4 but less than 6
    class 150
    6 but less than 8
    class 125
    8 but less than 10
    class 100
    10 but less than 12
    class 92.5
    12 but less than 15
    class 85
    Over 15 = class 70
