A standardized freight code must be used when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This code, which is published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, allows carriers to quickly identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship sisal, decorated, dyed accurately by using the information below:
Sisal, decorated, dyed
NOI, printed or surface coated, in packages
Sisal, decorated, dyed - 48970
NMFC numbers can have a number of subclasses. These are usually based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, sisal, decorated, dyed, 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.
The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) created the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC). It is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commercial movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the transportability of the large variety of commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments every year.
How is the cost of freight determined?
Your freight cost is determined by a number of variables, such as how far your shipment needs to go, the freight class number, whether or not accessorials are needed, as well as fluctuating fuel costs and truck capacity.
Can how I pack my shipment affect freight class?
Yes. How your freight is packaged can significantly affect the cost of your shipment. Contact Koho for questions about specific commodities and best packaging practices.
