Answers Land Transportation Page | 62 2017 Let’s look at a couple more examples: i) Chargeable weight: 4,700 lb, Toronto to Kingston. 4,700 lb x CAN \$21.42 = CAN \$1,006.74 100 lb 5,000 lb x CAN \$18.85 = CAN \$942.50 declared weight!! 100 lb Again, in this case it is cheaper to DECLARE a higher weight! ii) Chargeable weight: 8,750 lb, Owen Sound to Toronto. 8,750 lb x CAN \$12.20 = CAN \$1,067.50 100 lb 10,000 lb x CAN \$8.54 = CAN \$854.00 declared weight!! 100 lb Again, in this case it is cheaper to DECLARE a higher weight! WHENEVER POSSIBLE, UTILIZE A WEIGHT BREAK TO SAVE YOUR CUSTOMER MONEY!
Answers Land Transportation Page | 63 2017 Exercise 3.5 (Answer) Instructions: the following assignments include determining the trucking charges associated with each shipment using the conversion and weight/volume ratio tables and CIFFA Logistics Canada Trucking Chart found in Appendices “ B, ” “ C ” and “ D. The accepted freight density ratio for trucking is 10 lb/ft 3 . Always check with the carrier! 1. 100 cartons of books to be delivered to London, Ontario from terminal Toronto. Totals: 300 ft 3 , 300 lb. Step 1 : determine the actual weight of the shipment. 300 lb Step 2: determine the volume weight of the shipment. 300 ft 3 x 10 = 3,000 lb Step 3: determine the chargeable weight . Actual weight = 300 lb Volume weight = 3,000 lb Therefore, chargeable weight is the actual weight = 3,000 lb (the higher of the actual vs. the volume) Step 4: determine the freight charge from the CIFFA Logistics Canada Trucking Chart in Appendix “ D. The rate is CAN \$17.64/100 lb Trucking charges = 3,000 x CAN \$17.64 = CAN \$529.20 100 lb 2. Your customer is located in Burlington and has 10 skids of bottled water, being delivered to terminal Toronto. Each skid weighs 1,000 lb and has dimensions of 48 in x 40 in x 70 in. Step 1: determine the actual weight of the shipment. 1,000 lb x 10 skids = 10,000 lb Step 2: determine the volume weight of the shipment. (L x W x H x P) ÷ 1,728 (converts from in 3 to ft 3 ) x 10 lb/ft 3 = (48 x 40 x 70 x 10) ÷ 1,728 x 10 = 778 ft 3 x 10 = 7,780 lb

Answers Land Transportation Page | 64 2017 Step 3: determine the chargeable weight Actual weight = 10,000 lb Volume weight = 7,780 lb Therefore, chargeable weight is the actual weight = 10,000 lb (the higher of the actual vs. the volume weights). Step 4 : determine the freight charge. The rate is CAN \$6.99/100 lb Trucking charges = 10,000 x CAN \$6.99 = CAN \$699.00 100 lb 3. Your customer is located in Brockville and requires a delivery of 5 boxes of electronic devices delivered to terminal Toronto. Each box weighs 10 lb and has dimensions of 12 cm x 10 cm x 5 cm. Step 1: determine the actual weight of the shipment. 10 lb x 5 boxes = 50 lb Step 2: determine the volume weight of the shipment. (L x W x H x P) ÷ 28,316.847 (converts from cm 3 to ft 3 ) x 10 lb/ft 3 = (12 x 10 x 5 x 5) ÷ 28,316.847 x 10 = 0.106 x 10 = 1.06 lb Step 3: determine the chargeable weight. Actual weight = 50 lb Volume weight = 1.06 lb Therefore, chargeable weight is the actual weight = 50 lb (the higher of the actual vs. the volume weights) Step 4: determine the freight charge.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
