Discount Freight Rates
Freight shipping rates are set by the carriers. When a shipper is charged less than rate card for their load, that’s discount freight. Discounts are determined by how much a company ships. The more you ship, the higher your discount. Enterprises with multiple shipments per day benefit from these discounts, as do freight brokers that arrange shipping for less frequent shippers, including small and mid-sized businesses.
