About ClassIT Freight Class Finder
ClassIT provides Carriers and Shippers the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC), a standard tool that compares commodities moving in interstate, intrastate and foreign commerce. Commodities are grouped into one of 18 classes from a low of class 50 to a high of class 500 based on an evaluation of four transportation characteristics: density, stowability, handling and liability. Together, these characteristics establish a commodity’s transportability. For classification purposes, all commodities are evaluated on the basis of the four transportation characteristics and ONLY on the basis of those four characteristics. The NMFC thus provides both Carriers and Shippers with a standard by which to begin negotiations and greatly simplifies the comparative evaluation of the thousands of products moving in today’s competitive marketplace.
