When shipping your products as LTL (less-than-truckload), you must assign your shipment a freight code. This is a standardized code issued by the National Motor Freight and Traffic Association that lets carriers identify qualities of the shipment and help with transportation logistics.
Ship wire rope accurately by using the information below:
In boxes, coils or drums, or on reels.
Wire Rope - 30940
Often, NMFC codes have multiple subclasses. These subclasses almost always distinguish various densities.
In this instance, the commodity, wire rope, 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.
The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) created the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC). It is used for all interstate, intrastate, and foreign commercial movement of LTL cargo. NMFC codes provide standardized freight classes to determine the transportability of the large variety of commodities that are shipped together in LTL shipments every 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 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.
