4 Way Logistics Conversion Formulas

Kilograms to Pounds – # kilograms x 2.2046
Pounds to Kilograms – # pounds x 0.453

Determine Cubic Feet

Length x Width x height divided by 1728 = cubic feet
(ex: 96″x36″x48″ is 165,888 divided by 1728 = 96)

Cubic Feet Into Lineal Feet

Cubic Feet (divided by) 58 = Lineal Feet
(ex: 388 (divided by) 58 = 6.69 (7′ of truck)
* (actual division number is 62, but freight does not always cube equally so we use 58)

Determine Density for NMFC Density Items

determine cubic feet of item (either box or shrink wrapped pallet)
weight divided by cubic feet = density
(ex: 500 lbs divided by 96 = 5.21 density in lbs. per cubic foot)

Dim Weight for Air Freight

length x width x height (divided by) 194 = dim weight (domestic)
(ex: 96″x36″x48″ (divided by) 194 = 855 lbs dim weight)

length x width x height (divided by) 166 = dim weight (international)
(ex: 96″x36″x48″ (divided by) 166 = 999 lbs dim weight)
