Building Materials, Miscellaneous: Paving Composition - 35120
What is Freight Class?
When shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you must assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code issued by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association that allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and help with transportation.
Ship paving composition accurately by using the information below:
Sand, slag, or stone and asphalt, pitch or tar combined, in bags, or in drums with or without tops.

Often, NMFC codes have subclasses. These subclasses generally are based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, paving composition, 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.
National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is a freight classification system created by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce shipping of LTL cargo. NMFC freight codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the ease of transport of many of the huge variety of different commodities being shipped together in LTL shipments every year.
What is a CWT rate?
CWT stands for hundredweight. LTL shipments are priced “per 100 pounds,” “cwt,” or “per hundredweight.” This means that a 400 lb shipment priced at $25 CWT would cost $100, not including accessories or specialty services.
What does NOI stand for?
NOI stands for Not Otherwise Indicated. This is used when a commodity does not have an NMFC code. In these cases, density is usually used to determine freight class.
