When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association that allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship clothing compounds accurately by using the information below:
Proprietary electroplating additive, other than corrosive materials,Applies only on proprietary compounds or agents formulated to enhance the quality of finish in electroplating processes, in bags, boxes, drums or Packages 2440 or 2520
Clothing Compounds - 50420
Having multiple subclasses is not unusual for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are usually a question of density.
In this instance, the commodity, clothing compounds, 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.
Almost all U.S. LTL carriers use NMFC freight classes, although some are attempting to move to a dimensionally-based system.
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.
