FAQs

What is freight class code definition?

Created and maintained by a nonprofit membership organization named the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA), National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is a classification system used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL shipments. You can learn more from the experts at Koho on our freight classes pages.

Can I use a lower NMFC class to save money on shipping?

No. If you claim that your freight is a lower class than it actually is, your carrier will likely find out. They will charge you a fee for reclassifying the freight and charge you the appropriate amount for the actual class of your freight after it has been shipped.

What happens if I don't put an NMFC freight class on my BOL?

If you don't include an NMFC code on your BOL, it is very likely that your carrier will charge you a reclassification fee and charge you the cost of shipping the freight they they determine your shipment is.
