#### Overview

• 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

• Bushels: Weight/(lbs to Bushel Conversion) x Rate+ Adjustments.
• Short Tons: (Weight/2,000) 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:

## 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:

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.
