When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you 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 logistics.
Ship sponge mops accurately by using the information below:
Dish, bottle or glassware, cellulose or plastic, with handles attached:
Sponge Mops - 33280
Having multiple subclasses is not unusual for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are usually a question of density.
In this instance, the commodity, sponge mops, 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.
HSN stands for Harmonized System of Nomenclature. It is a system for classifying commodities created by the World Customs organization. U.S. LTL shipping, however, uses NMFC classifications instead.
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.
