NMFC = National Motor Freight Classification Number.
Carriers rate and ship freight based on freight class. Freight classes and NMFC numbers are defined by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA). The NMFTA is responsible for maintaining industry-wide guidelines and an NMFC catalog for everyone to abide by.
When quoting with Freightview, entering the correct NMFC and freight class is crucial for obtaining an accurate rate. Any descrepancies will be subject to price increases or adjustments after pick up. And remember, even though you may have contracted rates or a certain percentage discount, those discounts do not always apply to adjusted or second invoices for charges added after pickup.
