When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you must assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code implemented by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to easily identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship ice boats accurately by using the information below:
KD, in packages
Ice Boats - 24890
Having subclasses is not uncommon for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are generally based on density.
In this instance, the commodity, ice boats, is further broken down in the following subclasses:
Subclass NMFC Code
Please note: This is for educational purposes only. Ultimately, the carrier reserves the right to classify the groups.
HSN stands for Harmonized System of Nomenclature. It is a system for classifying commodities created by the World Customs organization. U.S. LTL shipping, however, uses NMFC classifications instead.
What is the purpose of freight classification?
Freight classification groups products based on similar density, stowability, handling and liability so carriers and shippers have an effective way of communicating the ease of transporting said freight.
Can how I pack my shipment affect freight class?
Yes. How your freight is packaged can signifcantly affect the cost of your shipment. Contact Koho for questions about specific commodities and best packaging practices.
