How Do I Calculate Freight Charges?

Posted by LNC Logistics

One of the most common misconceptions surrounding freight shipping, is that the price quote for your freight charges is completely based around the weight of your freight. However, this is not the case. Freight shipping logistics companies work with shippers in order to help them operate at maximum efficiency. This is done by helping fill the entire space available in a trailer before the truck leaves. Think about tetris, how all of the pieces have to fit together in order to build up the wall. With freight shipping, it is the same way. All of the freights dimensions must be compatible and able to fit together in order to fill the truck bed. This makes the shape of your freight important as well as the weight.


At LNC Logistics, we provide accurate and fast shipping quotes for your freight! We take many different factors into consideration to get your shipping quote. Two of the most important factors as mentioned above are the weight and dimensions of your freight shipment. If you have two packages that are the exact same weight, this does not mean they will necessarily cost the same amount to ship. However, the size and dimensions of the freight sometimes will affect the overall price more than any other factor. Additionally, if you have a third box that is the same weight and even more easy to accommodate dimensions, but it requires special shipping, such as climate control or fragile carrying, this has the ability to impact the overall costs of your shipment greatly.
