Easy Guide to Freight Class

Easy Guide to Freight Class

Get your Easy Guide to Freight Class below where we further elaborate on how to determine the right class for your shipment.

Need an easy guide to understanding freight class?

Which do you think would be more expensive to ship, 50 pounds of feathers or 50 pounds of bricks? Think about it in terms of weight and freight density. If you guessed 50 pounds of feathers, you are correct. Why? Feathers are much lighter than bricks, but 50 pounds of feathers take up a significantly larger amount of space in the trailer. Our Easy Guide to Freight Class teaches you how to determine the right class for your shipment.

The NMFC® is the standard that provides a comparison of commodities moving in interstate, intrastate and foreign commerce. It’s similar to other groupings or grading systems that many other industries use. Our guide takes the boring NMFC standards and makes them easier to understand.
