Calculating Density & Linear Footage
Formula 1 - Finding Cubic Feet
(Length x Width x Height)
_____________________ = Cubic Feet
Formula 2 – Calculating Density
________________ = Pounds Per Cubic Foot
Formula 3 – Finding Linear Feet
____________ = Linear Feet
*Shipment dimensions are calculated using inches. Shipments that occupy a total of 750 cubic feet or more with a density of 6 pounds per cubic feet or less will fall into cubic capacity and are subject to inflated freight charges.
*To calculate the density of shipments with several pallets and identical dimensions, multiply the cubic feet by the number of equal pallets. For pallets of different dimensions, find cubic feet for all shipments and add them together. To find linear footage of non-stackable standard pallets, multiply the number of skids by two.
