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.

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.

Does stackability affect freight class?

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