Freight Charges Recording (Non-Member)


Freight charges may be “buried” in your cost of sales, but they can make a significant difference in your bottom line.  Many large and sophisticated shippers negotiate formal contracts with their rates and discounts, but others usually get a rate – over the phone or in an email – from a carrier or broker.  Unfortunately, few people really understand the basics of carrier pricing.

In this Virtual Workshop subject matter experts will explain:

  • LTL (Less than truckload) Class rates, NMFC (National Motor Freight Classification) classes and base rate tariffs
  • Proprietary products, CzarLite
  • Recent changes to the NMFC
  • FAK (freight all kinds) rates
  • Dimensional pricing, dynamic pricing for LTL shipments
  • Truck Load rates – point to point, mileage
  • Spot or quoted rates-is there a catch to watch out for?
  • Accessorial charges and surcharges—their impact on total cost
  • The relationship of rates to carrier liability—does a low rate have a hidden cost?
