What is Freight Class?

When you ship your products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight, you’ll need to assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standard code created by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association which allows carriers to identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.

Machine compressed to a density of not less than 17 pounds per cubic foot, Density must be shown on the bill of lading and shipping order by the shipper at time of shipment. If density is not shown and shipment is inadvertently accepted, charges will initially be assessed under the NOI provisions. Upon satisfactory proof of actual density, freight charges will be adjusted accordingly.

FAQs

How can I determine NMFC codes?

An organization named the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) publishes a list of freight class designations, codes, and subclasses for frequently shipped commodities (https://classit.nmfta.org/). You must pay a subscription fee to view it. Find more information about freight classes from the experts at Koho for free on our freight classes pages.

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 I always use density to find the right NMFC class?

No. While density is one of the primary factors in determining NMFC freight class, other factors, such as value, are also used in making that determination. Gold bars, for example, are very dense, but they fall into shipping class 500 along with very low-density items because of their high value.
