I agree with Mike's point on this but it raises the question of thebasis for
the charges. If the car was full was it considered a bulkshipment, and if
not were they considered LCL and subject to a different freightrate? Or was
there some threshold? Anybody know more about how this worked?======================
It depends on the tariff, if its a carload rate then one tractor or 6
tractors is carload. If its a rate per pound or item then there was
probably a minimum weight or number of items required to get the
rate. Less than that probably went at a higher rate. The maximum
number was set by the capacity of the equipment.
