NOI-Pounds Per Cubic Foot Calculator

Freight rates are based on a number of factors including, PCF (Pounds Per Cubic Foot).  A low PCF will result in a higher class rating and a higher cost per pound for shipping.

This tool is intended to give you approximate freight classifications based on the PCF only, with NOI (NO OTHER INFORMATION). Other factors such as how much of a truck your freight occupies, the ease of handling and value may affect your actual shipping rate. But unless your freight is oversized, difficult to handle or very valuable, this tool will give you a good idea of how your freight will be classified.

As an example, a shipment that works out to 1.31 pound per cubic foot and weights 100 pounds (Class 300) will be much more expensive to ship than an item that has the same weight but equates to 9.67 pounds per cubic foot (Class100). The reason for this is the space it occupies. As a result, the higher the class, the higher the cost to ship.                 More Info

Freight Classification is a system used to classify goods based on four characteristics:

  • Density - weight per cubic foot 
  • Stowability - including excessive weight and excessive length
  • Ease of Handling - includes special care or attention necessary to handle the goods 
  • Liability- includes price per pound, susceptibility to theft, liability to damage, and perishability

There are 18 different freight classes from a class 55 up to a class 500.

Freight is classified by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing both shippers and carriers with a system to compare pricing on the movement of commodities in interstate and intrastate transport. The purpose is to simplify the pricing complexities of the thousands of goods moving in today‚Äôs marketplace. 

** The National Motor Freight Traffic Association does not allow for freight classes or NMFC codes to be posted online to the public, as this information is copyrighted and only disclosed to paying members of the NMFTA, such as freight carriers, freight brokers, freight forwarders and logistics companies.

 If you are unsure of the freight classification for the commodities that you are shipping you can:

  1. Call the Manufacturer of the item you are shipping and ask them what the freight class is. Manufacturers know the freight class of their own products. If you do not know the manufacturer of the goods, contact the distributor or seller (the person you bought the goods from).
  2. Call the National Motor Freight Traffic Association at 1-703-838-1810. The NMFTA are the freight class experts, as they established the freight classifications.
  3. f you are a client of ours, booking your shipment with us, give us a call and we'll be happy to look up your item to determine it's class and nmfc#. Call 1-800-229-5519. Customer inquiries only please. **

 ** Please note that it is important that you select the correct freight class to ensure you receive accurate freight shipping quotes. The carriers determine their shipping charges based on the freight class and weight.

If you select the wrong freight class or weight when getting quotes and then schedule you shipment based off that incorrect information, you will have been charged incorrectly and will be subject to the carrier re-classing and re-weighing your shipment, which could result in a higher shipping charge.

All carriers verify freight classes and weight for accuracy, which means that after they pick up your shipment, they will weigh your goods at their terminal and verify the class you provide on our bill of lading. If the class or weight on the BOL is incorrect, they will re-class or re-weigh and charge us accordingly.

You are responsible for any additional charges associated with your shipment resulting from incorrect information provided to us. Please take the time to determine the correct freight class and weight of your shipment to ensure you are charged correctly from the start. We are happy to assist you with this. Your co-operation will help us make your shipping experience as smooth as possible. Thank you.
