A freight code must be used when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This standardized code, published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, lets carriers identify qualities of the shipment that help with transportation logistics.
Ship swings accurately by using the information below:
NOI, chain or rope, Applies only on swings consisting of chain or rope with or without fittings and seats without arms or backs; without supporting members or stands, in boxes.
Swings - 17460
Often, NMFC codes have subclasses. These subclasses generally are based on the density of the shipment.
In this instance, the commodity, swings, 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.
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.
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.
