Enter the Length, Width and Height in Inches and the Weight in Pounds to Calculate the Freight Density in Pounds per Cubic Feet (PCF).

### Step 1

Measure the Length, Width, and Height of the shipment in inches. Measure to the farthest points for each dimension, including skids and packaging.

### Step 2

Multiply the three measurements (Length, Width and Height). The result is the total cubic inches of the shipment. If you have multiple pieces, multiply the length x width x height for each piece. Take the results for each piece and add them together to get the total cubic inches

### Step 3

Divide the total cubic inches by 1,728 (the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot). The result is the cubic feet of the shipment. Here is an example using a 42” x 48” x 48” skid weighing 500 pounds.

1. Multiply 42″ x 48″ x 48″ = 96,768 cubic inches
2. Divide 96,768 by 1,728 = 56 cubic feet
3. Divide 500 pounds by 56 cubic feet = 8.9 pounds per cubic feet (PCF), i.e., density
