Class 50 Freight – Clean Freight
Class 50 freight can generally be described as those items that have a high density per cubic foot. The NMFC defines this as 50 pounds and above per cubic foot. In addition, items shipped under this class have to meet a number of other criteria including that items must be shipped on a pallet and that all items fit on the pallet. NMFC Class 50 freight also must be durable and not be subject to breakage.
Most often items that fall into NMFC Class 50 are heavy manufactured items that fit neatly on a pallet, bricks, sand, nuts & bolts for example.
Rarely would consumer shipped items use class 50 as their freight code. Freight Management Logistics staff and personnel want to be your freight experts, give them a call and they can help you with your freight codes from 50 to 500.
While you might think that things such as gold would ship as class 50 because they are heavy, they far exceed the value restrictions for class 50 and in fact shipping gold and other precious metals moves your freight to NMFC Class 500.
