When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code created by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.
Ship caps and cover wrappers accurately by using the information below:
Caps and Cover Wrappers
Heat shrinkable tubular plastic film. Applies only on bands, sleeves or wrappers which employ the heat-shrinking process for final sizing to product. Cut to size, printed or not printed, KD flat, in boxes

Having multiple subclasses is not unusual for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are usually a question of density.
In this instance, the commodity, caps and cover wrappers, 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 Classification (NMFC) is the freight classification system devised by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commercial movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the ease of transport of many of the wide variety of commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments.
How is the cost of freight determined?
Your freight cost is determined by a number of variables, such as how far your shipment needs to go, the freight class number, whether or not accessorials are needed, as well as fluctuating fuel costs and truck capacity.
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.
