Density Freight-Class Calculator & Chart



Crate pallet

The National Motor Freight Traffic Assocation (NMFTA) has defined a National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) system, which is used to assign a freight class to your shipment, which, in turn, determines how much it will cost to ship it. There are 18 different classes that range from 50 (least expensive) to 500 (most expensive). The freight class is determined based on the value, fragility, ease of handling and perishability of the content, and by density (weight and dimensions).

Use our Density Freight-Class Calculator to determine the Pounds per Cubic Foot (PCF) and the Freight Class.

If the shipment is palletized, use the dimensions of the pallet, the combined height of the carton plus the pallet, and the total weight of the shipment. In the illustration (above left) the dimensions would be 48"x40"x28".
