In response to the Surface Transportation Board's (STB) termination of antitrust immunity for the National Classification Committee's classification-making activities, National Motor Freight Traffic Association members voted to adopt a new organizational structure and set of operating procedures. These procedures allow for continued development and maintenance of the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) without the need for antitrust immunity while facilitating continued input from carriers, shippers, and third parties. Adoption of the procedures will take effect Dec 6, 2007.
NMFTA created two new organizations to implement the procedures. They are the Classification Resource Committee (CRC) and the Commodity Classification Standards Board (CCSB). The CRC consists of the elected representatives selected by NMFC participating motor carriers in North America and serves to provide advice, information, and resources to the CCSB.
