What are Freight Classes?
Freight classes are designed to help you get common standardized freight pricing for your shipment when obtaining quotes from carriers. Freight classes are defined by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) and made available through the NMFC or National Motor Freight Classification.
Freight classes are based on weight, length and height, density, ease of handling, value and liability from things like theft, damage, break-ability and spoilage. The lower the NMFC class number, the lower the freight charge.
