Density Calculator

density-calculatorA shipment’s density is one of the factors that determines the freight rate. Shippers need to know how to calculate a shipment’s density so they can properly describe their goods on the bill of lading. The total weight of the shipment is divided by the total cubic feet to determine the density.

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. When determining the dimensions of your shipment, be sure to measure the longest sides including any packaging, overhangs or protrusions.

All values entered must be in a number format (whole or fraction) with no more than 5 decimal places.

Quantity Length (in.) Width (in.) Height (in.) Total Weight (lbs.) ÷ Total Cubic ft. = Density lb./Cubic ft.
