Carrier Totals on a shipment display the total cost a carrier is charging to move your freight.
Customer Totals are the final costs you’ll be paying, including any markups you add to the Carrier Total.
Markups for FTL
When booking a shipment, whether it’s LTL, volume LTL, or FTL, you have the ability to add a markup to the overall cost.
Carrier total refers to the carrier (trucking company) cost they are charging to move your freight.
You also have the ability to add a markup to the overall cost to move the freight. This can be done either as a calculated percentage, or a dollar amount you specifically indicate.
Your final Customer Total is your vendor cost plus any markup you add.
