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
|1 but less than 2
|2 but less than 4
|4 but less than 6
|6 but less than 8
|8 but less than 10
|10 but less than 12
|12 but less than 15
|Over 15 = class 70
