When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code made by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to quickly identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship discs accurately by using the information below:
Planting, compressed peat, in boxes having a density in pounds per cubic foot of 20 or greater, Density must be shown by the shipper on shipping orders and bills of lading at time of shipment. If density is not shown and shipment is inadvertently accepted, charges will initially be assessed under the provisions for 'Blocks, seedling, peat,' per item 24200. Upon satisfactory proof of actual density, freight charges will be adjusted accordingly.
Discs - 57345
Subclasses are divisions of an NMFC number that usually distinguish similar items that have different densities.
In this instance, the commodity, discs, 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.
