Trademark Class 39: Shipping and Travel Services

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 39 is opted to register a trademark for services for transport, packaging and storage of goods and travel arrangements.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 39 includes services for transport, packaging and storage of goods and travel arrangement. Trademark Class 39 includes mainly services for the transport of people, animals or goods from one place to another (by rail, road, water, air or pipeline) and services necessarily connected with such transport, as well as services relating to the storing of goods in a warehouse or other building for their preservation or guarding.

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 39?

You would choose Trademark Class 39 if you were registering services:

  • rendered by companies exploiting stations, bridges, railroad ferries, etc. used by the transporter.
  • services connected with the hiring of transport vehicles.
  • Services connected with maritime tugs, unloading, the functioning or ports and docks and the salvaging of wrecked ships and their cargoes.
  • services connected with the packaging and parcelling of goods before dispatch.
  • services consisting of information about journeys or the transport of goods by brokers and tourist agencies, information relating to tariffs, timetables and methods of transport.
  • services related to the inspection of vehicles or goods before transport.

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 39 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 39 for your service, you also consider the following “Related Classes”:  Class 36- Insurance and Finance Services, Class 35 - Advertising and Business Services, Class 38 - Telecommunication Services, Class 40 - Material Treatment Services, Class 37 - Shipping and Travel Services, Class 41 - Education and Entertainment Services, Class 43 - Food Services, Class 42 - Science and Technology Services, Class 44 - Medical and Vet Services, Class 45 - Legal and Security Services.

Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for posters in Class 16 and shirts for Class 25, you should pay two separate fees.

It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
