What is Freight Class?

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

FAQs

How can I determine NMFC codes?

An organization named the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for frequently shipped commodities (https://classit.nmfta.org/). You must pay a subscription fee to view it. Find more information about freight classes from the experts at Koho for free on our freight classes pages.

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.

Does stackability affect freight class?

Yes. If your shipment can be stacked, it allows the carrier to fit more freight into their truck.
