When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code made by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to quickly identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship barrel base knobs accurately by using the information below:
Barrel Base Knobs
NOI, in boxes, crates or drums
Barrel Base Knobs - 22040
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, barrel base knobs, 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.
Created and maintained by a nonprofit membership organization named the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA), National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is a classification system used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL shipments. You can learn more from the experts at Koho on our freight classes pages.
How is the cost of freight determined?
Your freight cost is determined by a number of variables, such as how far your shipment needs to go, the freight class number, whether or not accessorials are needed, as well as fluctuating fuel costs and truck capacity.
Can how I pack my shipment affect freight class?
Yes. How your freight is packaged can signifcantly affect the cost of your shipment. Contact Koho for questions about specific commodities and best packaging practices.
