When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you have 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 cotton covering accurately by using the information below:
Printers' roll or roller, tubular rubber, in boxes or drums, or in straight lengths in bundles with ends protected.

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, cotton covering, 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 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.
Can how I pack my shipment affect freight class?
Yes. How your freight is packaged can significantly affect the cost of your shipment. Contact Koho for questions about specific commodities and best packaging practices.
