Freight Classes - What you ship determines the rate you will pay. The freight industry has established a standard for establishing a freight rate within the United States. This system is known as "Freight Classing". There are 18 different freight classes from a class 50 up to a class 500. All items shipped within the United States via LTL (less than a truck load) freight carrier move under one of these classes. Use the tool below to help calculate freight class.
