FAQs

What are the NMFC codes?

Created and maintained by a nonprofit organization called the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA), National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is a classification system used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL shipments. You can learn more on our freight classes pages.

What is the least expensive freight class?

Freight class 50 is the least expensive because it refers to the freight that is easiest to transport for the carriers.

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 they determine your shipment is.
