ABSTRACT
The article reports that Maria Yee Inc. has received approval from the National Motor Freight Traffic Association to put its BambooTimbre products in a freight class that will reduce customers' shipping costs by 40% in the U.S. It is noted that the prior classification of the company's furnishings had led to higher freight costs due to the fragile nature of the goods.
