Shipment Density Calculator:
How to measure and convert units   

The calculator provides the density for your shipment. Accurately measure in inches the height, width, and length of the shipment (include packaging and the pallet). Weigh it in pounds.

Measuring Tips
In cases where the shipment is palletized, the dimensions including the pallet determine the cubic dimensions.

Example:
Height 28" (22" of carton plus 6" of pallet), Width 40", Length 48", equals 53,760 cubic inches or 31.1 cubic feet.
The density equals the weight, 110 lbs (80 lbs for the carton and approximately 30 lbs for the pallet), divided by the cubic dimension equals 3.54 lbs per cubic feet.
