Premium freight charges as a percentage of total freight charges

This measure calculates the percentage of total freight charges that are premium freight charges. Premium freight charges arise when delivery of materials is completed in an expedited fashion; shipments are typically booked between four hours and five days prior to pick up. It is part of a set of Supplemental Information measures that help companies evaluate additional variables not covered elsewhere for the "operate outbound transportation" process.
