Title: NMFTA Announces Freight Classification Changes & What Shippers Need to Know
Intro: Freight classification changes are part of the growing shipping industry, and the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) has again enacted changes to the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC), which took effect August 5, 2017. Unfortunately, the NMFTA’s Notice of Disposition to guide shippers on how the latest changes will affect existing freight classifications can be confusing. In addition, shippers may feel worried or anxious about the new changes and how they will impact freight spend, their customers, and overall operations. However, shippers can effectively prepare for these changes by understanding them and knowing what they mean to their operations.
