When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you’ll 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.
Ship compounds, degumming accurately by using the information below:
Fabric or fiber, in drums
Compounds, degumming - 50145
Having multiple subclasses is fairly common for NMFC numbers. These subclasses are primarily based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, compounds, degumming, 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.
HSN stands for Harmonized System of Nomenclature. It is a system for classifying commodities created by the World Customs organization. U.S. LTL shipping, however, uses NMFC classifications instead.
What does class mean when shipping?
The class determines the cost of the shipping. The lower the class, the lower the cost.
What does NMFC stand for?
NMFC stand for National Motor Freight Classification. This is a classification system used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL shipments. You can learn more on our freight classes pages.
