When you’re shipping any goods via LTL, it’s important for you to know and understand the freight class that is needed in order to get your product shipped using the correct procedures and to enable you to get the correct things such as prices and insurances. The freight class that your fishing gear falls under will depend on its freight density.
In most cases, the freight class of fishing gear ranges from Class 40 to Class 600.
The other factors that determine freight class are handling stowability and liability.
Handling - Most freights are loaded with mechanical equipment and therefore no handling difficulties arise, however, due to fragility, weight, shape, or hazardous properties some freight need extra attention.
Stowability - Some items can’t be loaded together, and hazardous materials must be shipped in a certain way. If there is excessive weight, protrusions, or length some items may be impossible to load with other items.
Liability - Some loads are more susceptible to theft, others are more fragile, perishable, or more damaging to the actual freight.
