Determine Your LTL Freight Class the Easy Way

Shipping is just one part of running your small business, so you need to keep it simple. Yet necessary tasks like determining your shipment's classification number used to be difficult and time-consuming.

Not anymore, thanks to the new LTL (less-than-truckload) freight classification tool from FedEx Freight.

Why it's important
In most cases, an LTL freight shipment is identified by a classification number. This number indicates the type of product in the shipment and affects not only carrying charges but also the overall shipping process.

As a freight shipper, you need to determine the right freight class for your shipment to minimize surprises. To simplify the process, we developed an LTL freight classification tool that takes you through two easy steps:

  • Pick your product's commodity type. For example, are you shipping building materials, printed materials or automotive parts?
  • Enter the dimensions of your shipment, including weight, height, width and length.

Receive your estimated class result. It's that fast and easy!

Find your rate
Now that you know your LTL freight class, you can use it to determine your rate with our Get FedEx Freight Rates online tool.
