Density Calculator
In order to determine your freight class and NMFC you will need to know your pounds per cubic foot or PCF. There are two calculators below to help you determine your PCF which will then allow you to find your freight class.
** Not all commodities are density based, so below is only a guideline. Contact us for the correct freight class and NMFC.
Step 1: Use one of the two options below to calculate your PCF
Option 1 – Dimensions of Shipment
What you will need:

 Total Weight of Shipment
 Length, Width, and Height of the Shipment
 Number of Pieces in the Shipment
If the shipment is palletized, use the dimensions of the pallet, the combined height of the carton + the pallet, and the total weight of the shipment.
Option 2: Use Cubic Meters
What you will need:
 Cubic Meters (CBM) of the shipment
 Total weight of the shipment
Step 2: Use Table below to determine what class corresponds with the PCF range.
Your calculated your PCF can help provide a suggested density classification.
PCF
