FUVI
  1. When all or part of an LTL rated shipment tendered to the Carrier is classified as being a CAPACITY LOAD shipment, the minimum charge will be as follows:
    1. The Capacity Load Minimum Charge is a combination of the Constant Shipment Charge per shipment plus the mileage charges which are calculated using the Variable Mileage Rate times the applicable direct miles between the origin and the destination using the HGB 100 Mileage Guide.
    2. The charges are designated for a loaded PUP (28 foot trailer) and for a loaded Set (2 PUPs – 56 feet) as applicable to the size of shipment and corresponding trailer capacity used. The Set price will also apply to a single trailer exceeding 29 feet in length
    3. The destination state of the shipment determines which charges apply. The destination state is determined by three categories identified as “states List A or B or C”, show immediately below.
    4. Excess freight loaded on the last pup or vehicle exceeding 29 feet in length that is not a capacity load as defined in part 2 will be considered a separate shipment and so rated.
