Tariff based contracts

Tariff based contracts stipulate a tariff or rate for shipping a particular good over a particular lane. The rate for the shipment is stipulated based on lane (origination point to destination point) and volume/weight shipped. These types of contracts do not require the shipper to use the carrier who has signed the tariff contract. If the shipper does decide to use the carrier who has signed the contract, then the rates stipulated apply. The shipper, however, can use any carrier for the shipment and in that case the tariff based contract serves simply as a market price comparison chart. This type of contract is usually time limited and the rates are renegotiated at periodic intervals.
