FAQs

What is a freight code?

National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is a freight classification system created by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce shipping of LTL cargo. NMFC freight codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the ease of transport of many of the huge variety of different commodities being shipped together in LTL shipments every year.

Can I use a lower NMFC class to save money on shipping?

No. If you claim that your freight is a lower class than it actually is, your carrier will likely find out. They will charge you a fee for reclassifying the freight and charge you the appropriate amount for the actual class of your freight after it has been shipped.

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.
