Is a Higher Freight Class More Expensive?

Higher freight classes are more expensive due to several factors, including density, stowability, handling, and liability. For example, some items with the highest freight class of 500 include ping-pong balls (due to their lack of density) and gold dust (due to the risk of theft).
