Commodity Import & Upload


In many cases it is advantageous for FreightWise to hold a Client's commodity listing. In some cases the client's ERP cannot support NMFC designations and classes and in other cases when clients ship hazardous materials the ERP does not hold those.


Special Notes:

  • Part Numbers
    Part numbers in the commodity system have to be unique. A part number can be alphanumeric - which means it can be a number or text or a combination of both. White spaces are allowed inside of the part number.
  • Dims
    All dims in the FreightWise system are in inches. Fractions are supported but please keep in mind that most all carriers simply use the ceiling function to move any fraction to the nearest inch.
