A standardized freight code must be used when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This code, which is published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, allows carriers to quickly identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.

FAQs

How do I get my NMFC code?

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.

How is the cost of freight determined?

Your freight cost is determined by a number of variables, such as how far your shipment needs to go, the freight class number, whether or not accessorials are needed, as well as fluctuating fuel costs and truck capacity.

What happens if I don't put an NMFC freight class on my BOL?

If you don't include an NMFC code on your BOL, it is very likely that your carrier will charge you a reclassification fee and charge you the cost of shipping the freight they determine your shipment is.
