What is Freight Class?

A freight code is required when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This code is published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association and lets carriers quickly identify qualities of the shipment to help with transportation logistics.

FAQs

How do I get my NMFC code?

An organization known as the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for many commonly shipped commodities (https://classit.nmfta.org/). You must pay a subscription fee to view this list. For more information about freight classes for free on our freight classes pages.

How is freight class calculated?

The first step in determining your freight class is to take measurements. Measure the height, width and depth of your shipment then multiple those three measurements together for the total cubic feet. Then divide the total cubic inches by 1,728 (the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot). Finally, divide the weight (in pounds) of the shipment by the total cubic feet.

Why is the freight class of some commodities fixed?

Some items, such as car transmissions, have a specific class no matter how heavy or big they are. This is called a fixed class. Items can be assigned a fixed class if the value and transportability very rarely change.
