What is Freight Class?

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

Paper Coffee Filters - 69100

For many NMFC codes, there isn’t one single class that is applied. Often, NMFC numbers have multiple subclasses, which are frequently based on density.
In this instance, the commodity, paper coffee filters, is further broken down in the following subclasses:

FAQs

Do all LTL shippers use NMFC freight classes?

Almost all U.S. LTL carriers use NMFC freight classes, although some are attempting to move to a dimensionally-based system.

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.

Can I always use density to find the right NMFC class?

No. While density is one of the primary factors in determining NMFC freight class, other factors, such as value, are also used in making that determination. Gold bars, for example, are very dense, but they fall into shipping class 500 along with very low-density items because of their high value.
