- Freight Amount Calculation
- Weight Based
- Hours Based
- Miles based

I would like to understand how the total **Amount** on a load is calculated.

**Freight Amount Calculation**

There are three ways to calculate the **Amount:** quantity of commodity (**Weight Based**), miles of the haul (**Miles Based**) or hours spent on the haul (**Hours Based**).

**Weight Based**

The **Amount** is determined by the quantity of **commodity** on the load at some price per unit of **Commodity** with an optional **Adjustment** dollar amount included. The price per unit is captured by the **Rate and the** **Rate UoM **(Rate Unit of Measure).

If available, the **Net Destination Weight** is used in the calculation as the weight of the load. Otherwise the **Net Origin Weight** will be used. If the **Rate UoM** is **Bushels**, the weight is converted to bushels by a industry standard commodity specific conversion factor.

Here are the Rate UoMs that are available for the weight based method and the associated equation for calculating the **Amount**.

Weight/(lbs to Bushel Conversion) x Rate+ Adjustments.**Bushels:****Short Tons:**(Weight/2,000) x Rate+ Adjustments**Hundred Weight:**(Weight of Load/100) x Rate + Adjustments**Pounds:**Weight of Load x Rate + Adjustments**Metric Tons:**(Weight of Load/2,204.62) x Rate+ Adjustments

**Hours Based**

The **Amount** is determined by the time taken for the haul of **commodity** at some price per hour with an optional Adjustment dollar amount included. The calculation is given below:

(Hours x Rate) + Adjustments

**Miles Based**

The **Amount** is determined by the distance driven for the haul of **commodity** on the load at some price per hour with an optional Adjustment dollar amount included. The calculation is given below:

(Miles x Rate) + Adjustments

* Tip*

On the Roger Web Command Center, hover the mouse over the calculator icon in the **Amount** field over and the **Amount** calculation details will be shown

* *Note

**Carriers**and**Shippers**will have agreed on a governing weight on a load. If the agreed governing weight is the**Net Destination Weight**, then the destination weight must be entered. If the agreed governing weight is the**Net Origin Weight**, then only the origin weight should be entered and the destination weight should be left blank. If both weights are entered, Roger will use the destination weight for calculating the amount.**Adjustments**can be both positive or negative.**Adjustments**can only be performed on**Submitted**loads.**Rate UoM**cannot be changed once the load has been paid
