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.
Ship camp stoves accurately by using the information below:
Cooking, outdoor type, charcoal burning, designed for permanent installation, steel, 12 gauge or thicker, in packages:

For many NMFC codes, there isn’t just one class that is applied. Frequently, NMFC numbers have a number of subclasses, which are usually based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, camp stoves, is further broken down in the following subclasses:
Individual units, as packaged for shipment, must not exceed 115 united inches (length, width and depth added). For units exceeding 115 united inches, see item 25861.
Subclass NMFC Code
Please note: This is for educational purposes only. Ultimately, the carrier reserves the right to classify the groups.
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 is the purpose of freight classification?
Freight classification groups products based on similar density, stowability, handling and liability so carriers and shippers have an effective way of communicating the ease of transporting said freight.
How do I calculate density?
Multiply the length, width, and height of your shipment, then divide the total weight of your package by that number. If your shipment is 4 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 4 feet tall, you would multiply 4 x 5 x 4 to get 80 cubic feet. If it weighs 800 pounds, you would divide 800 / 80 to get 10 pounds per cubic foot.
