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 subassemblies accurately by using the information below:
The transportation of which is not prohibited by law, Shipper must certify on shipping orders and bills of lading at time of shipment that transportation of the gambling devices, subassemblies or essential parts, as the case may be, is not prohibited by law, prepaid, in boxes or crates.

Often, NMFC codes have numerous subclasses. These subclasses are almost always based on how dense the items are.
In this instance, the commodity, subassemblies, is further broken down in the following subclasses:

The National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is the freight classification system devised by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commercial movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the ease of transport of many of the wide variety of commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments.
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.
