When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight, 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 logistics.

Coal briquette, in drums, or in cloth or four-ply paper bags
Bee Binder - 23485
Subclasses are further divisions of an NMFC number that generally distinguish among items that can have different densities.
In this instance, the commodity, bee binder, 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.
The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for commonly shipped items (https://classit.nmfta.org/). A subscription is required to view this list. You can read more about freight classes at Koho for free on our freight classes pages.
What is a CWT rate?
CWT stands for hundredweight. LTL shipments are priced “per 100 pounds,” “cwt,” or “per hundredweight.” This means that a 400 lb shipment priced at $25 CWT would cost $100, not including accessories or specialty services.
Do all commodities have NMFC freight subclasses?
No, not all commodities have freight subclasses, although many do.
