A standardized freight code must be used when shipping products as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. This code, which is published by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association, allows carriers to quickly identify qualities of the shipment and assist with transportation logistics.
Ship thicker, nested solid accurately by using the information below:
Thicker, nested solid
Thicker, nested solid - 35750
Having subclasses is not uncommon for NMFC numbers. Subclasses are generally based on density.
In this instance, the commodity, thicker, nested solid, 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.
National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is the freight classification system that was created by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the transportability of most of the countless different commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments each year.
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 happens if I don't put an NMFC freight class on my BOL?
If you don't include an NMFC code on your BOL, it is very likely that your carrier will charge you a reclassification fee and charge you the cost of shipping the freight they they determine your shipment is.
