Box Rate

To simplify the troublesome process of calculating the freight rate based on a rate per tonnage, the freight rate calculated per container and decided regardless of cargo type and volume is known as Box Rate. The box rate typically includes the cost of the container, handling fees, and transportation charges from origin to destination, regardless of the weight or volume of the cargo inside the container. The box rate is a common pricing model used by shipping companies to simplify the pricing process for their customers and to provide more predictability in transportation costs.
