Share Article

The annual election of the Classification Resource Committee officers took place during the September 9 - 10, 2012 National Motor Freight Traffic Association, Inc. (NMFTA) | Classification Resource Committee (CRC) | Commodity Classification Standards Board (CCSB) meetings.

The officers elected to serve one year terms are as follows:
M. Lloyd Rawson – Chairman
Joseph C. Colapietro – First Vice Chairman
Timothy S. Vander Pol – Second Vice Chairman
Paul G. Levine – Secretary

The CRC consists of up to 100 members elected from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Canada and Mexico to represent motor carriers that are participants in the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC). Any officer, owner or employee of a participating interstate motor carrier can become a member of the CRC.

The CRC provides information and other resources to the CCSB on matters relating to the content of the NMFC. It provides information on classification research activities, the transportation characteristics of products moving via motor carrier and on motor carrier operations. The CRC may make recommendations and give advice regarding the Policies and Directives for developing and maintaining the NMFC. The CRC members are eligible to participate in the various NMFTA committees and CRC subcommittees which also meet during the NMFTA | CRC | CCSB meetings. These smaller, subject-driven committees have become the cornerstone of the meetings and provide the optimum forum for the members to discuss and solve problems and concerns affecting the LTL industry.

The next NMFTA | CRC | CCSB meeting will take place on January 27 – 30, 2013 in San Diego, CA. Both the CRC and CCSB meetings are open to the public and all parties interested in the classification process are welcome to attend.


Founded in 1956, NMFTA’s mission is to serve as a research and development organization providing the transportation industry with the necessary information through education, research, and publication of specifications, rules, transportation codes and the preparation and dissemination of studies, reports and analyses.
