Notes:  Weights in the above tables are estimates that in some cases closely represent the actual weight per unit of the commodities (i.e., petroleum products), and in the case of categories that cover multiple items are rough estimates that are based on the averages of the weights of a number of commodities within that category.  There can be large variations in the weights of commodities within a category due to type of products within the category, product specification (e.g., moisture content in the wood) and temperature.

After converting to pounds, round to the nearest whole number. For example, if you ship 15 gallons of paint, that equates to 172.5 pounds (15 gallons x 11.5 pounds per gallon) according to the chart.  Round 172.5 to 173 when reporting on Item F.  If your shipment is less than one pound, always round up to one pound.
