Providing the correct freight class number is imperative to receiving an accurate freight shipping quote. Your freight class number is determined by dimension, density, stowability and handling. We’ve outlined some of the most common commodities to ship and their associated freight class numbers to easily look up the NMFC code you need.
Because LTL carriers carry a wide variety of freight from different shippers in their trucks, they use a system called National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) codes to correctly identify and charge for different commodities. When you book your shipment, providing the correct NMFC code is essential in getting an accurate quote from your shipper and avoiding unexpected fees. Use our NMFC code lookup tool to find the correct code for your freight.
An LTL shipper books two 5-pallet shipments on the same day with the same carrier going to the same destination. However, the carrier sees this as a single 10-pallet shipment and hits the shipper with a big fee. Whose fault is it anyway?
