When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code created by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.
Ship ornamental accurately by using the information below:
Metal or wood, NOI:
Ornamental - 29200
Often, NMFC codes have numerous subclasses. These subclasses are almost always based on how dense the items are.
In this instance, the commodity, ornamental, 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.
An organization known as the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for many commonly shipped commodities (https://classit.nmfta.org/). You must pay a subscription fee to view this list. For more information about freight classes 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.
What are NMFC freight subclasses?
NMFC freight subclasses are used to differentiate among commodities of the same type. For example, one NMFC code for chairs/stools is 82790. Subclasses 82790-1 and 82790-11, despite have the same base NMFC code, fall into two different freight classes.
