A freight rate is the price paid to move cargo from one point to another. There are many factors that impact the final freight rate, but they aren't all set in stone. In fact, there are some, like fuel costs or trailer capacity, that constantly fluctuate. At FreightCenter, we provide a service tool that allows current freight rates.
HOW ARE FREIGHT RATES CALCULATED?
The following is a list of factors on how rates are determined:
- Mode of transportation
- Weights and DIMs
- Point of origin
- Point of destination
- Actual goods shipped
- Insurance coverage
Having a detailed list from the above factors will help you get a more accurate quote—when it comes to freight shipping, the devil is in the details. If you are unsure of specifics call 800.716.7608 and get in touch with one of FreightCenter's expert freight agents for answers to your questions.
