Standard Carrier Alpha Code™


The Standard Carrier Alpha Code™ (SCAC®) is a unique two-to-four letter coding system used to identify transportation companies.

The National Motor Freight Traffic Association, Inc., (NMFTA) assigns SCAC® codes for all companies except those codes used for identification of freight containers not operating exclusively in North America, intermodal chassis and trailers, non-railroad owned rail cars, and railroads.
