When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you’ll need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code created by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.
Ship aircraft landing gears accurately by using the information below:
Aircraft Landing Gears
Aircraft Landing Gears - 12200
For many NMFC codes, there isn’t one single class that is applied. Often, NMFC numbers have multiple subclasses, which are frequently based on density.
In this instance, the commodity, aircraft landing gears, is further broken down in the following subclasses:

Please note: This is for educational purposes only. Ultimately, the carrier reserves the right to classify the groups.
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 the NMFC class for clothing?
