General Tariff Information

The Surface Transportation Board has ruled that effective January 1, 2008 interstate motor carriers are not immune from collective rate-marking (collective tariff-making). The end to this immunity may subject interstate motor carriers to anti-trust prosecution for operating collectively with other motor carriers using the same tariff. Effectively, to avoid anti-trust prosecution by the Department of Justice each motor carrier should have their own custom tariff published.

Consumers will receive the benefit of differing methods of charging for line-haul services. Charges based on weight, cubic feet, cubic meters, hourly charges or other volume based measurements can be made available as options for consumers. A menu of differing accessorial services at competitive rates could be included as an incentive for consumers. Custom tariffs mean more selection and choice for consumers.
