Building metalwork: Conductor Pipe (Downspout) - 36190
What is Freight Class?
All LTL (less-than-truckload) shipments require a freight code. This code, created by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, allows carriers to quickly identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship conductor pipe (downspout) accurately by using the information below:

Copper, lead or zinc. When in shipments of 24,000 pounds or more, provisions include accompanying equipment of hangers. In boxes or crates

Subclasses are smaller divisions of an NMFC number that almost always distinguish among similar items that can have different densities.
In this instance, the commodity, conductor pipe (downspout), is further broken down in the following subclasses:
Item 110, Sec. 13 will govern, except the words 'two or more' may be substituted for 'three or more.'
Subclass NMFC Code
Please note: This is for educational purposes only. Ultimately, the carrier reserves the right to classify the groups.
An organization known as the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for many commonly shipped commodities (https://classit.nmfta.org/). You must pay a subscription fee to view this list. For more information about freight classes 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 is density?
Density is the relationship between weight and size. A ping pong ball, which is very little material surrounding a good amount of air, is low density. Bricks, which are heavy for their size, are high density. In LTL shipping, it is commonly measured in pounds per cubic foot.
