For LTL (Less than Truckload) shipping, billing is determined by a few key factors, including the classification of the product(s) shipped. The classifications and the associated classes can be found in the National Motor Freight Classification book. The current version is NMF 100-AN and is set to expire 2/7/15. All of the supplements published over the last year will be integrated into the new version, NMF 100-AO effective 2/8/15.
With the many changes that will take effect, and the fact that rate clerks are not experienced in the research and classifying of products, many overcharge errors will occur. AMTR’s trained auditors can ensure that the right classification is being applied for your products and that you are not being overbilled.
