Make sure you are aware of any changes in the class of your freight prior to it being sent out. Rate quotes are offered based on the accuracy of the information provided, so if your freight is shipped under the wrong class, it will likely be re-weighed and the class will be adjusted, thus changing the price that you were originally quoted. 

2. SAVE TIME

Stay up to date on NMFC changes so you can proactively change the NMFC number in your TMS or on any other pre-populated shipping documents. By being aware of the changes ahead of time, there will be no extra time spent reweighing your pallets or fixing documents for your carrier.

3. SAVE A HEADACHE FOR YOUR CARRIER 

Nobody likes doing extra work. By knowing your freight information before submitting the documents needed to ship your freight, there will be more guarantee that your shipment will stay right on schedule.  Your carrier will have all the information they need to get your freight en route to the destination without having the carrier redimentionalize your shipment.
