Different types of products have different shipping costs associated with them. The
motor carrier industry defines products being shipped according to certain characteristics:
density, stow ability, handling and liability. Each definition, or description, is
called a freight classification or, simply, a freight class.
PRO PAK Freight needs each shipment's freight class to determine shipping charges.
Most ground transportation providers use a reference called the National Motor Freight
Classification (NMFC) to determine freight classes for rating purposes.
The NMFC catalogs freight classes and assigns item numbers to products being shipped.
To calculate the shipping charges, PRO PAK Freight consults the NMFC to find the
best description for each product in the shipment. For each description, the NMFC
also specifies the associated shipment class and item number.
The NMFC item number and the text describing the product should be stated on the
bill of lading for every shipment tendered to PRO PAK Freight.
