Your shipping rate is the price applied to your freight based on several factors, including fluctuations in fuel prices, carrier, type of cargo, destination, class and other shipment details.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL SHIPPING RATES?
Generally, it costs less to ship to a commercial facility with a loading dock as opposed to a residential address. For more rural locations where roads are less efficient for transportation, the rates can be even higher.
Any destination or location that restricts trucks from entering a point of entry is considered to be limited access. Cconstruction sites, military bases, school, churches, government facilities, are typically billed as limited access locations.
