What is freight class based on?

Freight classifications are based on four characteristics:

  1. Density: The weight per cubic foot.
  2. Freight Stowability: The length and width based on carrier mode rules.
  3. Ease of Handling: Evaluation of the care involved in transporting.
  4. Liability: This includes the freight price per pound, susceptibility to theft, liability to damage, breakability and perishability.

It is imperative to accurately determine the National Motor Freight Classification of the items being shipped to avoid costly adjustments.
