How your shipment dimensions and weight, including
packaging, affect your freight costs?
The dimensions and weight of your shipment are used to calculate density. Density is the relationship between how much room an item takes up and its weight. For example, a square inch of lead is much denser and thus heavier than a square inch of cork.
The density of your shipment is used to find your freight classification.
In general, as you estimate freight costs, the higher the density of your shipment, the less it costs to ship.
Our Freight Class calculator tool will automatically calculate your density when you enter your shipment length, width, height and weight.
