Freight class 100 is one of 18 classes created by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association. Shipments with a class 100 freight will have a weight range and density of 9 to 10.5 pounds per cubic foot. Commodities and materials that are commonly found in this class include: cases of wine, car and boat covers, and engines. It is important to determine the correct freight class number for your shipment because it’ll provide you with a more accurate quote and spare you from losing money on delays and reclassification fees.
Density can be defined by your shipment’s dimensions and weight. Class 100 freight should have a density that is between 9 to 10.5 pounds.
Handling is the amount of labor necessary to transfer your class 100 freight shipments to each LTL (less-than-truckload) terminal.
The worth and probability of your class 100 freight shipment being damaged or stolen is what we call liability.
The stowability is how easily your freight class 100 shipment can be packed with other freight. The NMFC (National Motor Freight Classification) class code can be affected if your shipment needs special handling.
