When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you must assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code implemented by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to easily identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship barrel bases accurately by using the information below:
Grave marker, cast stone enclosed in a plastic shell, with installation hardware, in packages
Barrel Bases - 22064
NMFC numbers can have a number of subclasses. These are usually based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, barrel bases, 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.
National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is the freight classification system that was created by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the transportability of most of the countless different commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments each year.
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.
