Trucking Rates and Freight Rates: How are They Set?

Trucking resources

Our standard trucking rates are based on full truckload shipments. They vary according to a number of factors. For example, trucking rates are higher for difficult to access pick-up points, businesses without loading docks, and oversized or overweight loads. FRC’s less-than-truckload (LTL) freight rates give lower rates to clients AND higher rates to truckers by combining several small loads into a single truck. As a trucker delivering an LTL load, you have several pick-up and drop-off points, all close together or on the same route. Your hauling capacity is more fully utilized, you make more on the haul, and the clients each get a lower rate, too. It’s a win-win. We make this possible by using software to optimize routes and freight volumes.
