What Is Class 150 Freight?

Freight classified as Class 150 includes:  Heavy lifting and lifting capacities;  Bailey bridge, bridge crane or flat car;  General lights;  General signals;  Trailers, magnetic coupler-type, typically with a top box similar to that on railcars;
The term “class 150” is used in North America by Canadian railways. The railway classification system used by North American railroads is incompatible with the one in widespread use throughout the rest of the world. The Canadian Railway Group (CRG) determines how much weight can be safely transported via each different size of train. It is not equivalent to European class 150, but more like European class 444 (now termed EURO1). === The current freight classification system has five levels – each one representing an increasing level of safety. Level 5:  No limit imposed on weight except for deadweight 4390 kg Application of plate girder design for inclined track structures. Cautionary directional indicators may have been attached to container gantry cranes handling 220 tonne containers at bridges over major ports originating from or terminating in Canada and United States such as Chicago Harbor and Port Huron. === Contents of this post are from my personal research.

What Is Covered Under Freight Class 150?

I think the freight class for cargo being transported is 150, which includes all kinds of goods, including computers.
The exact wording from this answer: In the US and Canada all cargoes are classified in accordance to their weights and contents, within a particular(Freight) classification code that corresponds to their weight and volume. Class 150 … or 150 means 150-200 pounds per cubic foot of expanded space. The common commercial boxes are classified under C150 category. Shipping Service Organizations may classify goods under special classes (such as the National Defense Sealift Controls Act classification), but normally there is not a need to use special classifications when shipping office supplies under normal packages. The common Commercial Bulk Shipping Codes described on a standard shipping label is only used when transporting hazardous materials where extra care must be put into transport.
So in short; 150 means everything up to 100 pounds (there’s no difference between meaning 100 lbs even though you can use pound here) and everything above that has zero weight and it counts as cargos… no wonder we don’t weigh cats in ships!
Oh, by the way that was sarcasm folks  I’d like my cats back…
