LTL freight or "less-than-truckload" are shipments that do not fill an entire truck. LTL freight is quite common to ship, but knowing how to define the correct classifications and options for your needs is not always easy.  When you entrust your company's LTL freight with BGI, you'll get unparalleled convenience and cost savings for domestic shipping.

Costs of trucking LTL freight are based on The National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) standard, differing from the way air and ocean freight costs are calculated. All commodities fall into 1 of 18 classes between a low of 50 to a high of 500.

NMFC classes are based on four transportation characteristics:

  • density
  • stow-ability
  • handling 
  • liability
