Jan 1, 2006 12:00 PM
The National Motor Freight Traffic Association will begin publishing the new issue of the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) NMF 100-AF in November 2005.
The NMFC classifies all types of goods and materials transported by truck in North America. The classification facilitates comparisons of the transportability of commodities moving in intrastate, interstate, and foreign commerce. Commodities are assigned one of 18 classes — from a low of 50 to a high of 500 — based on four transportation characteristics: density, stowability, handling and liability. The NMFC comprises one of the two components of motor carrier pricing systems.
The NMFC can be purchased by participants in the NMFC for $119 and non-participants for $160, plus $16.50 for shipping and handling. It contains more than 8,000 product classifications and 750 pages of material. For more information on the NMFC or to purchase a copy, go to www.nmfta.org or phone 866-411-6632.
