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 electrodes cap and cover accurately by using the information below:
Electrodes Cap and Cover
NOI, in boxes or drums
Electrodes Cap and Cover - 40630
For many NMFC codes, there isn’t just one single class that is applied. NMFC numbers often have subclasses, which are almost always based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, electrodes cap and cover, 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.
Is an NMFC code required?
Adding NMFC code to a shipment is technically optional, but the NMFC codes can help avoid reclassification and ensure you're using the correct freight class number.
Why is the freight class of some commodities fixed?
Some items, such as car transmissions, have a specific class no matter how heavy or big they are. This is called a fixed class. Items can be assigned a fixed class if the value and transportability very rarely change.
