Three Ways of Saving by Knowing Your NMFC Numbers

NMFC updates happen every quarter and are crucial for all shippers to be aware of, as it directly impacts your freight spend and your pricing. Stay up to date on the latest NMFC changes and you’ll save in more ways than one! 

Save Money

Make sure you are aware of any changes in the class of your freight prior to it being sent out. Rate quotes are offered based on the accuracy of the information provided, so if your freight is shipped under the wrong class, it will likely be re-weighed and the class will be adjusted, thus changing the price that you were originally quoted.  

Save Time

Stay up to date on NMFC changes so you can proactively change the NMFC number in your TMS or on any other pre-populated shipping documents. By being aware of the changes ahead of time, there will be no extra time spent reweighing your pallets, calling carriers to find out why your costs increased, or editing documents. 

Save Yourself A Headache

Nobody likes doing extra work. By knowing your freight information ahead of time, your freight is more likely to arrive on time.  

Please note that the NMFC is moving towards using a more density-based class system. It’s important to capture accurate cubic/density information for all shipments in order to ensure the class is accurate. Stay up to date with NMFC changes by trusting the experts at Roadrunner.
