  1. Unless otherwise provided, shipments that consist of differently classed articles contained in or on one handling unit that have been inspected and the inspection determines the Shipper’s information was inaccurate, the handling unit will be rated at the class shown in Paragraph 2 based on the density of the unit using the weight and measurements of the unit.

  2. If Density is: Apply Class for rating purposes:
    Less than 1 pcf 400
    1 pcf but less than 2 pcf 300
    2 pcf but less than 4 pcf 250
    4 pcf but less than 6 pcf 150
    6 pcf but less than 8 pcf 125
    8 pcf but less than 10 pcf 100

    30 pcf but less than 35 pcf 60
    35 pcf but less than 50 pcf 55
    50 pcf or greater 50
  3. In the case of density based commodities where the Shipper lists two or more differently classed commodities on a handling unit but the average density of the handling unit is found to be outside the ranges indicated by the Shipper, the handling unit will be classified in accordance to the class determined by the average density of such handling unit.
