National Motor Freight Classification® (US)

For (US) interstate, intrastate or international LTL Freight shipments an NMFC® Freight Class is assigned primarily based on density, (lb. per cubic foot).

Our Quick Quote tool estimates freight class based on size and weight entered and displays a list of carriers, services and rates for pallets of LTL Freight or delivery of parcels, (envelopes, boxes, shipping tubes, etc).

Get a Quick Quote

Freight Class may be adjusted up or down depending on type of item shipped, handling requirements, how “stow-able” the cargo is and the liability, (potential for loss, high value, etc).

Rates are lower for lower freight classes, and higher for higher classes. Shipments requiring special handling may be assigned to a higher freight class. Products which are high-values, easily damaged, prone to loss, may damage other freight, or are perishable may be assigned a higher freight class. Products which are large, or irregularly shaped, or un-stackable such as assembled furniture, machines, etc may be assigned a higher freight class.
