Calculating Freight Rates
Shipping freight rates vary depending on which carrier you choose. Several factors should be considered when getting your freight rates. The following factors all have an impact on your rate:
- Mode of transportation.
- Shipment’s weight and dimensions.
- Freight class.
- Point of origin.
- Point of destination.
- Type of goods being shipped.
- Insurance coverage.
- Extra services, add-on services, and accessorials.
Accuracy is key when calculating your freight rates
A detailed list of the above factors will help you get a more accurate estimate. When it comes to freight shipping, the devil is in the details.
- Are you shipping to a business in a commercially zoned location or a residentially zoned location? At-home businesses often require that you select the residential and limited access location shipping services accessorials.
- Is there a loading dock at the delivery location? If not, you need to choose liftgate services.
- Does your cargo require special equipment, such as temperature-controlled shipping?
- Is your shipment time sensitive? Then selecting expedited shipping services during the quote process helps keep your freight a priority even during delays.
- Did you weigh and measure your fully packaged shipment?
All of these items affect the final freight rate. Accurately reporting weight and dimensions as well as selecting all add-on services during the quote process helps you avoid surprise billing adjustments later. It also helps provide you with the most accurate estimated quote.
