A free, online truckload rate calculator from FairTran is designed to help fleets identify what rates they should be charging for loads.

The calculator, located at https://www.fairtran.com/calculator.aspx, allows carriers to input variables specific to their company. It returns a customized dollar per mile rate immediately, FairTran said.

“FairTran already offers a free national truckload rating index,” said Charlie Collins, president. “However, each carrier is different and will have different costs as a result. Our new rate calculator overcomes this difference.”

FairTran also offers the National FairTran Value truckload rate index for free. It is updated weekly. A fee-based service that calculates a customized value for a particular company is available from the company as well.
