When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code created by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.
Ship bacteria accurately by using the information below:
Seed or soil inoculating, in preservative or soil, in boxes, drums or double bags
Bacteria - 20380
For many NMFC codes, there isn’t just one single class that is applied. NMFC numbers often have subclasses, which are almost always based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, bacteria, is further broken down in the following subclasses:
Subclass NMFC Code
Please note: This is for educational purposes only. Ultimately, the carrier reserves the right to classify the groups.
