What is Freight Class?

When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you’ll have to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code made by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.

FAQs

How do I find my NMFC code?

An organization called the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for many frequently shipped items (https://classit.nmfta.org/). To view this list, you must pay a subscription fee. Learn more about freight classes from the experts at Koho for free on our freight classes pages.

What happens when a freight class code is wrong?

It might be tempting to declare that your shipment is a lower freight class than it actually is in order to secure a lower price, however, carriers will re-classify your freight for accuracy and charge you a fee for having to do so.

What does NOI stand for?

NOI stands for Not Otherwise Indicated. This is used when a commodity does not have an NMFC code. In these cases, density is usually used to determine freight class.
