Freight Class and NMFC’s are two of the most confusing pieces of the freight-shipping puzzle, but they are also two of the more important parts. If you use the incorrect NMFC (National Motor Freight Classification) or freight class, you are risking either a re-bill for higher freight costs, or you could be spending too much on freight.
Even if you have used the same NMFC/Freight class for a number of years, that doesn’t mean it’s still valid. The program Global Source Logistics uses to look up this information is updated several times a year, and each update can have hundreds of changes.
If you are in doubt, or have no idea what your freight class or NMFC is, contact us. We’re happy to help. I’d much rather spend a few minutes to see you get the correct information than an unexpected rebill.
