You can spend up to a third of your freight charge on shipping and handling costs by estimating the estimated amount of time needed to ship each item to your destination, and then dividing that amount by the actual time required to arrive at your destination.
The formula is simple.1/Shipping estimate2/Cost per day of shipping3/Cost of shipping on averageThe formula works the same way if you want to estimate how much your freight charges will be, but it takes into account the time required for the freight charge to arrive, and the cost of the item itself.
This formula, known as the FedEx shipping calculator, can help you determine how much you’ll be charged for each shipment.
The FedEx shipping estimates can be useful if you’re planning to travel a lot or need to ship multiple items to multiple locations.1.
Shipping estimateEstimate your shipping costs by adding up your estimated costs for each shipping option, such as ground, pickup, delivery, and delivery plus handling, and subtracting your actual shipping costs.2.
Shipping costEstimate the amount of freight charge you’ll need to pay for each item shipped.
If you’re shipping items on a per-item basis, such a freight charge will equal the difference between the actual cost of each item and the estimated freight charge.3.
Handling estimateEstimated handling costs are often higher than actual handling costs, and are often based on the actual freight charges.
You can use the handling estimate to determine the estimated handling cost.4.
Shipping on averageEstimate how long it will take for the total cost of shipping each item you want your shipment to arrive.
If the estimated shipping cost exceeds the actual shipping cost, you will be charged more for your shipment than if it were delivered and handled separately.5.
FedEx shipping costEstimations of shipping costs are useful for determining the actual delivery and handling charges and the actual costs of shipping.
For example, if your freight is $2,000, the estimated cost of a freight trip to deliver an item to you is $1,400.
However, if the shipping cost is $3,000 and the shipping charge is $600, your total freight charge for a shipment of $2 the actual $1 is $5,000.
To use this FedEx shipping calculation, you can enter the freight rate in the box next to your shipping address.
You’ll see a number that indicates how much of your total charge will be used for handling, shipping, and actual freight costs.
If your estimated shipping charge exceeds the total freight cost, the actual shipment cost is deducted from the total.
The shipping estimate is then used to calculate the shipping charges.
The actual shipping charges include the actual amount of postage to ship your item to the destination.
To calculate the actual total cost for each package, enter the total shipping charge in the “Total Shipping Charge” box, along with the actual number of items you want the package to arrive with.
For each item, enter a shipping charge for the actual items you’re expecting to receive and the total charges you’ll have to pay.
The total shipping charges should be calculated from the final total cost that the items were shipped with.
The final total costs will be shown in the boxes next to each shipping item.
