Calculate freight costs in a flash

FTL rates are generated by Uber Freight’s robust machine learning pricing algorithms based on real-time data including market conditions like day of the week, time of day, weather, and seasonality.

LTL rates are typically calculated based on several factors such as: weight, distance, freight class, base rate, accessorial charges (e.g. lift gate), fuel surcharges, and minimum charges. Freight class is based on the shipment’s density, stowability, handling, and liability, also known as NMFC. There is a density calculator tool on the platform to help you estimate your shipment’s freight class.
