Building metalwork: Fllexible plastic combined - 37280
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, lets carriers quickly identify qualities of the shipment to help with transportation logistics.
Ship fllexible plastic combined accurately by using the information below:

Also applies on accessories necessary for installation, not to exceed 10 percent of weight of shipment, in boxes or in fiberboard containers testing not less than 150 pounds

Having subclasses is not uncommon for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are generally based on density.
In this instance, the commodity, fllexible plastic combined, is further broken down in the following subclasses:

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.
What is the purpose of freight classification?
Freight classification groups products based on similar density, stowability, handling and liability so carriers and shippers have an effective way of communicating the ease of transporting said freight.
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.
