Cube DensityCBE

All rates are subject to 10 lbs pcf unless otherwise specified. 10 pcf =length (in) x Width (in) x height (in) divide by 1728 x 10 . If this amount is more than the actual weight of the shipment then the cubed weight would apply to calculate the freight charges. When it is not possible to load on top of a shipment, the cube dimensions for that shipment will be based on a minimum height of 8 feet.

Any piece or bundles that is less than 12" in diameter and weighs less than 250lbs will be rated at actual weight. Any piece or bundle in excess of 12" in diameter and heavier than 250lbs that, because of its dimension does not allow 2 skids to be placed side by side, will be cubed at 4' wide by 4' high by the actual length.
