When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you’ll have to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code devised by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.

Often, NMFC codes have subclasses. These subclasses generally are based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, hockey sticks, 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.
An organization called the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for many frequently shipped items (https://classit.nmfta.org/). To view this list, you must pay a subscription fee. Learn more about freight classes from the experts at Koho 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.
