The calculator then recommends a freight class based on that number. For example, a shipment that works out to 1.31 PCF and weighs 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 ( Class 100).
Hand sanitizers, with different types and concentration of alcohol, are classified differently. They’re still Class 3 Flammable Liquids , but they are typically classified as either Ethanol Solutions, UN 1170 (if Ethanol is the only alcohol used) or Alcohols, N.O.S., UN 1987 (if multiple alcohols are used).
Freight Class Calculator First measure the height, width, and depth of the shipment . In taking these measurements you must be sure to measure to the farthest points, including pallets or other packaging. Multiply the three measurements (height x width x depth). Finally, divide the weight (in pounds) of the shipment by the total cubic feet.
All 18 freight classes are based on weight, dimensions, density, storage capability, ease of handling, value and liability from instances like theft, damage, breakability and spoilage. The higher the freight class , the more expensive and more likely the item is to be damaged in transit.
Class 65 – 22.5-30 lbs. Class 70 – 13.5-15 lbs. Class 77.5 – 13.5-15 lbs. Class 85 – 12-13.5 lbs.

A low number ( class 50) means a low shipping price. Such an item has low value, is easy to handle and stow, is dense, and not fragile. Freight class codes also help determine if hazmat-certified drivers must truck it.
Your freight class is Use the FedEx LTL Freight Classification Tool to find your freight class . Generally, the higher the density of your product, the lower the classification (typically 50–85). More fragile and/or less dense products usually have higher classifications (typically 125–500).
