The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) is a nonprofit membership organization headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia . Its members are motor carriers operating in interstate, intrastate and foreign commerce. The association was established in 1956. [1]

NMFTA’s mission is to “promote, advance and improve the welfare and interests of the motor carrier industry and the motor carriers operating in commerce, both domestically and/or internationally.” [2]

The NMFTA publishes the National Motor Freight Classification ® (NMFC®), a standard that classifies cargo . NMFTA also produces ClassIT®, the online version of the NMFC. The Commodity Classification Standards Board (CCSB) develops and maintains the NMFC. [3] [4]

The NMFTA assigns and publishes the Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC), a two- to four-letter code used to identify road transport companies. The NMFTA also assigns and publishes the Standard Point Location Code (SPLC), a numeric code to identify locations in North America that originate and receive cargo.
