FAQs

What is the NMFC code?

The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) created the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC). It is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commercial movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the transportability of the large variety of commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments every year.

What does class mean when shipping?

The class determines the cost of the shipping. The lower the class, the lower the cost.

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.
