LTL rates are determined by class, weight, lane (i.e., pickup and delivery locations), and additional required services, if any.
A separate cost that is added on top of the line-haul, the fuel surcharge is the cost of fuel associated with the lane, specifically the distance between the shipper and the consignee. The fuel surcharge changes weekly due to barrel costs.
A load is considered a volume LTL shipment if it is more than 8,000 pounds and/or occupies more than 12 feet of trailer space. Vista will automatically seek out a backhaul from the LTL carrier to ensure the base rate and transit that meets the shipper’s needs.
Additional required services, such as liftgate delivery or call-ahead notification, may result in accessorial charges. Accessorial charges may be considered separate line item costs or included as a percentage of the weight.
