What is a NMFC class and how do I know which one to use?
A shipment's freight class is needed in order to calculate freight charges. Most providers of ground transportation use a reference called the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) to determine freight classes for rating purposes. The motor carrier industry defines products being shipped according to certain characteristics: density, stowability, handling and liability. Each definition, ordescription, is called a freight classification. The NMFC item number and the text describing the commodity should be stated on the bill of lading for every shipment tendered to Saia.
