Upgrading Pricing Accuracy for Motor Freight

The new NMFTA offering is named the Weighing & Research (W&R) Training and Support Program and is headed by Don Newell who has joined NMFTA from Roadway. “With estimates that as many as one in four shipments transported by common carriers are described, weighed or measured incorrectly,” he says, “a W&R program can help shippers and motor freight carriers meet legal obligations related to the description, measurement and weight of freight being transported as well as more accurately reflect shipping costs.”

The new program makes use of the NMFTA’s freight classification training and freight packaging workshop program. It can work to help establish a program, upgrade present W&R work or to increase the skills and knowledge of staff personnel. Learn more at the Association’s web site, www.nmfta.org
