Western Container Logistics

Our professional warehouse staff delivers friendly and courteous service. Accurate pallet/box counts are guaranteed. Our own experienced drivers deliver most orders. This minimizes shipping time and any in-transit damage. Personnel are routinely trained and tested to keep abreast of the latest regulatory procedures.

The Freight Class of your shipment is determined by the product's cubic capacity and density (lbs/cubic feet).  To obtain the cubic dimensions of a shipment, multiply the length x width x height.  For palletized loads, the pallet dimensions are the minimum length and width used in the cubic volume calculation.  The height of the pallet must be added to the load height.

Load Density is calculated by dividing the pallet's total weight by the capacity in cubic feet.  Add the pallet's weight to the load weight in determining total weight.  Try our Freight Class Calculator for easy freight class calculation.

The following chart shows the classifications for the Paper Articles Group, in the National Motor Freight Code, subject to item 152660:
