When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you’ll need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association that allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation.
Ship plow bottoms accurately by using the information below:
Plow Bottoms - 11150
Having multiple subclasses is fairly common for NMFC numbers. These subclasses are primarily based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, plow bottoms, 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.
Almost all U.S. LTL carriers use NMFC freight classes, although some are attempting to move to a dimensionally-based system.
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.
