We are agents currently representing over 2560 owner/ operators leased to one of the carriers above. We either call the driver(s) direct or post freight with their central office.
We will usually meet or beat costs of other actual trucking companies and owner operators, but not brokers or carriers brokering out their freight
–we quote physical numbers with physical trucks, not phantom rates!
*Below are average rates or methods of estimating costs
~Most drivers run for what fuel cost is: So, if it’s 2.49 p/gal, then 2.49 p/m (a fairly consistent method or theory of determining what is being offered to a driver is just add 2 zeros at the end of the quote and that will determine the salary per year (based on approx 100k miles p/yr and 12% deadhead. Example; $2.50 p/m equates to a 25k per year salary…nothing extravagant!).
~Depending on lane, a safe way of figuring costs for partials (on a per mile basis) is by going 8.5 to .10 per foot, per mile (or times the weight–whichever’s greater).
~Another similar formula for partials is by going $100 per foot (not based on mileage)..
~Over dimensional, overweight loads are typically quoted per shipment.
Here’s a basic formula for od loads… approx .10 for each inch over (i.e. a legal load would typically run 2.50 p/m, 8.7″ would be one inch od and .10 more and so on) plus out of route miles, permits and additionals (escorts will typically come in after 12′ but vary each state).
Overweight… .85 to 1.00 per axle (or just times that by the weight) plus additionals (i.e. let’s say a standard flatbed truck can load 47k and shipper has a 57k piece, so that added .85 to 1.00 p/m to his/her p/m rate, plus permits–and remember, it must be one piece…any od or overweight load that can be broke down is considered a divisible load and must not be hauled on one truck).
~FUEL SURCHARGE CAN VARY DEPENDENT ON LANE OR DESTINATION. Based on government findings web site @ http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/oog/info/gdu/gasdiesel.asp — Please keep in mind that although fuel prices have gone down, the price of tires, insurance, taxes, service, etc has not.
~Tarp Charges are $50.00 for half load/ partials – $100.00 for full load (up to 6′ drop tarps) – $150 for 8′ drop – o.d. loads are per shipment
~Stop offs or pick ups are $50.00
~Detention, Layover, Truck Ordered Not Used are subject to Tariff rates set by each carrier
~Expedited or exclusive use are to be negotiated between Shipper and Kennon Transport and should also be followed by written confirmation.
~Over dimension subject to negotiation and permits.
~This document is a tentative contract between the Shipper and Kennon Transport for the purpose of scheduling and setting rates. Rates are subject to negotiation and written confirmations.
~LOCAL RUNS APPROX $650 OR WILL RATE PER SHIPMENT/ OR FIGURE $65 P/HR W/ A 10 HR MIN FOR FLAT OR STEP, $90 P/HR FOR DD W/ A 10 HR MIN. ALL O.D LOADS ARE RATE PER SHIPMENT
*Terminology — expedited, dedicated and exclusive use terms can mean different things to different carriers (i.e, our definitions may be different than van carriers like UPS and so on. Expedited means guaranteed fast service. Dedicated means we have to meet time restrictions (appointment only, meet a crane/crew at a certain time and so on) and exclusive use means just that…nothing else on the truck. These services are typically 10 to 30% more.
THIS IS NOT A BINDING CONTRACT UNLESS SIGNED BY BOTH CARRIER AND SHIPPER
