FAQs

Do all LTL shippers use NMFC freight classes?

Almost all U.S. LTL carriers use NMFC freight classes, although some are attempting to move to a dimensionally-based system.

What is the purpose of freight classification?

Freight classification groups products based on similar density, stowability, handling and liability so carriers and shippers have an effective way of communicating the ease of transporting said freight.

Does stackability affect freight class?

Yes. If your shipment can be stacked, it allows the carrier to fit more freight into their truck.
