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.
Ship scoops, steel accurately by using the information below:
The weight of hand agricultural implements or hand tools other than agricultural implements classed Class 85 or higher must not exceed 10 percent of weight upon which charges are assessed.
Scoops, steel - 6085
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, scoops, steel, is further broken down in the following subclasses:
