A freight code is required when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This code, published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, lets carriers quickly identify qualities of the shipment to help with transportation logistics.
Ship boat assemblies accurately by using the information below:
Boat Assemblies - 24520
Having multiple subclasses is fairly common for NMFC numbers. These subclasses are primarily based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, boat assemblies, 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.
An organization named the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for frequently shipped commodities (https://classit.nmfta.org/). You must pay a subscription fee to view it. Find more information about freight classes from the experts 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.
