What does NOI mean for my freight?

If you're in the shipping business, chances are almost certain that you've come across NMFC numbers. Just as certain is the struggle you've occasionally had on finding an appropriate classification for the freight in question. You scrolled through pages and pages of classes and NFMC numbers, and found that your freight simply doesn't seem to fit into any category. Fortunately, the folks at the NMFTA (National Motor Freight Traffic Association) have thought of this, and the solution is three letters: "NOI". This stands for "Not Otherwise Indicated".

Calculating Freight Density

Among the most important items needed to get an instant LTL quote, shippers must provide a freight class. Numbered 50-500, the freight class is based on different commodities set by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA). In many ways, the freight class plays a pivotal role in the rate. There are 18 different freight classes. A major factor that determines the freight class is the freight density.
