As of August 1st there have been numerous changes to how the trucking industry is classifying freight. Putting the wrong class or the wrong NMFC# (National Motor Freight Classification), could cause you to pay 10-20% more. Now is the time to update your current Bill of Lading (BOL)!
Many distributors have been using the same BOL for years. Trucking companies are now running at or over capacity. In order to cut there their costs they are looking at freight classifications in a different way.
Density based pricing is here to stay.
