Where Can Someone Find an NMFC Freight Classifications List?

Many businesses that offer transportation management services provide free lists of NMFC freight classifications on their websites. The National Motor Freight Transportation Association also offers an in-depth guide to the NMFC that can be purchased at NMFTA.org or accessed through ClassIT.

The National Motor Freight Classification or NMFC is a standard that allows carriers and shippers to quickly negotiate shipping costs. This standard evaluates transported materials based on four characteristics: density, handling, stowability and liability for theft and spoilage. There are a total of 18 NMFC freight classes as of 2015, with Class 50 being the least expensive, and Class 450 being the most expensive.
