At Crawford Freight, we want our customers to have the most hassle-free and affordable shipping/trucking services they deserve. Part of achieving that goal is to make sure that they understand how rates are calculated and what factors may contribute to the total price of their shipment fees.
A shipment’s density may be one of the factors that determine the freight rate. Depending on the freight class, shippers may need to calculate a shipment’s density so they can properly describe their goods on the bill of lading (BOL).
Click here for more information on determining freight class.
To determine the density, take the total weight of the shipment divided by the total cubic feet. Use the calculator below to determine your freight density so that you can identify the freight class.
