What is Freight Class?

You must assign your shipment a freight code when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This standardized code, issued by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.

Having multiple subclasses is not unusual for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are usually a question of density.
In this instance, the commodity, frames, is further broken down in the following subclasses:

FAQs

What is a freight code?

National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is a freight classification system created by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce shipping of LTL cargo. NMFC freight codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the ease of transport of many of the huge variety of different commodities being shipped together in LTL shipments every year.

How many freight classes are there?

The National Motor Freight and Traffic Association has 18 freight classes numbered 50 to 500. The lower the freight class, the lower the cost of transporting that freight.

Do all commodities have NMFC freight subclasses?

No, not all commodities have freight subclasses, although many do.
