not elsewhere specified (N.E.S.)

(shipping) The abbreviation N.E.S. often appears in air freight tariffs. For example: “advertising matter, N.E.S.,” “printed matter, N.E.S.,” indicating that the rate stated in the tariff applies to all commodities within the commodity group except those appearing under their own rate. The abbreviation N.E.S., as used in air freight tariffs, is comparable to the abbreviation N.O.I.B.N. (not otherwise indexed by number) and N.O.S. (not otherwise specified) which appear in tariffs published by the surface modes.
