Shipping within the United States is vastly different compared to shipping internationally.
One of the most important things to understand is the difference in freight classifications. When shipping domestically, shippers must advise the carrier of the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) instead of the Harmonized Tariff System number (import) or the Schedule B number (export).
