With this freight class calculator, you will never be surprised by freight quotas again. It is a tool that, basing on the pallet's weight and dimensions, calculates the class of your freight in a blink of an eye. If you are new to do business and have no idea how to calculate the freight class, have no worries - we will explain it to you in no time at all!
Freight classes are a way to categorize any shipment, basing on its dimensions and weight. They are directly correlated to the density of the shipment: the denser your cargo is, the higher the class. Typically, higher classes are charged less per pound, so you should make sure that your cargo is as compact as possible.
Our freight class calculator is based on the American NFMC (National Motor Freight Classification).
