What are factors that affect shipping charges?

Shipping charges are usually spelled out by delivery companies on rate sheets or agreements between service providers and their customers, shippers.  In addition to the charges incurred due to the time parameters, the shipment itself also affects the rate.

Volume or girth: How much room does shipment take up in the truck.  Also, how hard or easy is the shipment handled by the driver?

Weight: The heavier the shipment, the more expensive it’s going to be.

Access: Is the delivery time consuming or a quick turnaround?  Does the driver have to wait in line to be unloaded or to get a signature for proof of delivery?

Hazmat: Obviously shipping Hazmat items incurs higher shipping charges due to special handling requirements and regulations.

Delivery Locations: Shipments picked up or delivered in dense traffic areas or in remote areas will cause costs and therefore rates to be higher.
