The origin, destination, zip codes, classification, shipping weight, and any additional services that may be required in transit, will determine actual charges. Rates and additional charges will be determined using our signed rules and accessorial charges in place at the time of pick up. If no signed rules and accessorial charges are in place at the time of pickup, rates will be subject to the J.B. Hunt standard LTL rules tariff 101. Final rates will be calculated based on actual freight characteristics and will be invoiced if additional charges apply. The fuel surcharge will be calculated based on the DOE national average fuel price for the week of pick up.
