What is a CWT rate?
CWT stands for hundredweight. LTL shipments are priced “per 100 pounds,” “cwt,” or “per hundredweight.” This means that a 400 lb shipment priced at $25 CWT would cost $100, not including accessories or specialty services.
Does stackability affect freight class?
Yes. If your shipment can be stacked, it allows the carrier to fit more freight into their truck.
