Density Calculators for Accurate Cargo Transport

There are three factors that are vital for safe and efficient cargo transport; weight, dimension, and density. With the correct density information, freight truckers will know exactly how many trucks you need and of what size. Different rigs have different capacities, and having all the necessary information makes things easier for you and your transportation company.

Cargo Transport & Freight Density Calculator

For your convenience, we have set up an easy to use density calculator that will help you find out the precise density of your cargo. If you still feel that your shipment density is unclear, or if your freight has a unique requirement, we can offer custom service to help you determine the density of your shipment. Call us at (800) 822-4196 and we will be more than happy to help. To learn more about our cargo transport services, you can also contact us online to request freight rates for any shipment.

Ensure Effective Cargo Transport with Our Density Calculator

Our density calculator will help you estimate your overall freight cost, when you request a freight quote. Regardless of the type of cargo transport you require, density is one of the major determining factors on the cost. Therefore, knowing the actual density of your shipment will ensure accurate freight quotes for any cargo transport service.

Here is an outline of how your freight density can be calculated in cubic feet.

  • Calculate the width, length, and height of your cargo in inches. These measurements must include safety packaging and skids and of the largest of any measure. If you have several pieces to be shipped, you will need to calculate the dimensions of each package.
  • Multiply each of the above measurements (width x length x height) to find the cubic inches of your entire shipment. For more than one piece or package, you will need to multiply these values for each one. Add the resultant totals together for the total shipment size in cubic inches.
  • There are 1,728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot. So, in order to calculate the cubic footage of your cargo transport, divide the above total by 1,728. This number is the accurate cubic feet of the shipment.
  • Finally, divide the overall weight of your shipment (in pounds) by the above result. This gives you the density in pounds per cubic feet.

Since density is so important in determining rates, it is recommended to carry out the calculation more than once to ensure that you get an accurate density measurement. You may also want to recheck your measurements and weight to ensure accuracy. Some things that you should to keep in mind are:

  • If you have more than one piece, you need to add their weights together before you divide it by the cubic feet. This will give you an accurate total for the entire shipment.
  • If your calculation has fractions, round them off to the nearest cubic foot.

With this information in hand, you can then proceed to determining which trailer type you require and calculating an accurate freight quote for your cargo transport.
