Freight Classification to Change for LTL Stone Shipments

Posted on 28 December 2012 by CRadmin2

Freight rates will likely increase in April 2013 for stone blocks, pieces or slabs NOT mounted diagonally or vertically on lift truck skids, pallets, platforms, shipping carriers or racks, according to a press release issued by the Marble Institute of America (MIA). Rates were last raised in April 2012.

Proposed amendments to the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) would create two new sub classifications changing item 90500 to provide classes based on length for stone NOT mounted diagonally or vertically for shipment. In view of their respective transportation characteristics, handling units, such as pallets, crates and boxes, not exceeding 96 inches in length would be assigned a class 60, one class higher than that called for under current Commodity Classification Standards Board (CCSB) guidelines. Handling units exceeding 96 inches in length would be assigned a class 77.5, two classes higher than that called for under current CCSB guidelines.

The CCSB will conduct a public meeting January 29, 2013, to consider these, and 11 other, freight-classification proposals amending the NMFC. They urge all interested parties to review the proposal and submit information relating to the transportation characteristics of the products involved with or relevant to packaging materials or methods in connection with proposed amendments.

Amendments resulting from these proposals will be published in a supplement to the NMFC unless reconsideration is granted or arbitration is sought in accordance with the CCSB’s rules. The supplement is scheduled to be issued on March 21, 2013, with an effective date of April 20, 2013.
