FAQs

Do all LTL shippers use NMFC freight classes?

Almost all U.S. LTL carriers use NMFC freight classes, although some are attempting to move to a dimensionally-based system.

What is the best way to calculate your freight class?

Working with a 3PL like Koho can help you accurately determine your freight class so you can avoid re-classification fees with the carriers. For more information on the freight class system, go to the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association.

What is density?

Density is the relationship between weight and size. A ping pong ball, which is very little material surrounding a good amount of air, is low density. Bricks, which are heavy for their size, are high density. In LTL shipping, it is commonly measured in pounds per cubic foot.
