How do I get my NMFC code?

You must pay a subscription fee to view this list. For more information about freight classes for free on our freight classes pages.

If I am shipping a couch when do I use freight class 250 vs freight class 175?

If the couch you are shipping has not been assembled yet and you are shipping various components that you can use freight class 250. If you are shipping a complete product then you should use freight class 175.

Can how I pack my shipment affect freight class?
