Freight classes are the NMFC codes which are maintained by the NMFTA to standardize the shipping rates and important to determine the shipping rates for different kinds of products. The freight class ranges from 60 to 400.
NMFC numbers usually aren’t required to obtain a freight quote; providing a freight class is usually sufficient. However, carriers may require that a NMFC number be provided on accounts that have a history of misclassified shipments or if certain commodities are of concern.
LTL shipments are assigned a National Motor Freight Classification code, or NMFC code, to balance shipping costs against trailer space. It is important that you Find NMFC Codes when shipping your item. This helps carriers determine the cost to ship freight. The NMFC code was devised by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) to make sure that customers get an unbiased price when shipping by standardizing the freight shipping process. Freight can be sorted into 18 different freight classes based on its ease of transportability, ranging from low (class 50) to high (class 500).
When looking at LTL transit times, the first thing to remember is that they are estimates, not guarantees. When you receive an instant online quote for an LTL shipment, the estimated transit time given is not set in stone. It may be subject to any number of delays that can affect the actual amount of time it takes for the shipment to arrive at its destination.
