    Please note that this calculator provides an estimated freight class based off of the density of the product. In addition to density, your freight's actual classification (as established by the National Motor Freight Classification) will be based on your commodity's demonstrated transportation characteristics, such as stowability, handling, and liability. If you have questions about your freight's actual class, please contact your Schneider representative.
