FAQs

Where can I find freight class code lookup?

The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) annually publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for commonly shipped items (https://classit.nmfta.org/). To access this list, you are required to pay a subscription fee. Learn more about freight classes for free on our freight classes pages.

What happens when a freight class code is wrong?

It might be tempting to declare that your shipment is a lower freight class than it actually is in order to secure a lower price, however, carriers will re-classify your freight for accuracy and charge you a fee for having to do so.

Does stackability affect freight class?

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