I would like to understand how the total Amount on a load is calculated.
Load Amount Calculation
There are three ways to calculate the Load Amount: quantity of commodity (Weight Based), miles of the haul (Miles Based), or hours spent on the haul (Hours Based).
- The Amount is determined by the quantity of Commodity at a price per unit 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 an industry standard commodity specific conversion factor.
- Here are the Rate UoM 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.
- 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.
- The Amount is determined by the time taken for the haul of Commodity at a price per hour with an optional adjustment dollar amount included. The calculation is given below:
- (Hours x Rate) + Adjustments.
- 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.
On the Roger Web Command Center, hover the mouse over the calculator icon in the Amount field, and the Amount calculation details will be shown.
- Carriers and Shippers will have to agree 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 done by the Shipper.
- Rate UoM cannot be changed once the load has been paid.
