The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. Its members are motor carriers operating in interstate, intrastate and foreign commerce. NMFTA publishes the National Motor Freight Classification™ (NMFC®), a standard that provides a comparison of commodities moving in commerce. The NMFC® is developed and maintained by the Commodity Classification Standards Board (CCSB).[1]

NMFTA is committed to helping the industry meet the transportation challenges through research, education, and publication of specifications, rules, transportation codes and the preparation and dissemination of studies, reports and analyses.[2]

NMFTA assigns the Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC), a unique two-to-four-letter code used to identify transportation companies, and publishes the Directory of SCACs. NMFTA also assigns the Standard Point Location Code (SPLC), a numeric coding system designed to identify points in North America that originate and receive transportation with their geographic locations. Additionally, NMFTA produces SPLC Online, an internet-based system for retrieval of SPLC data.
