Zip Rating and Tariff Design

The Zip Rating Tariff Designer package goes way beyond providing the ability to "lookup" rates on the computer. It actually allows you to design and maintain your own classes and complete tariffs. The user can switch between unlimited separate tariffs, each with its own set of rate scales and classes. With this system you have the ability to create a variation of a standard class or classes and send them to your customers on a custom rate CD. Rate quotes can be printed from one point to several or all points covered by your tariff. Rating is fast, easy and accurate.

When used with Motor Freight Revenue Accounting, freight bills can be automatically rated at the time of entry, eliminating a tremendous amount of handling and time.

The RATE Determinations screen provides the ability to rate shipments using multiple tariffs and assessorial charges.  A weight and class is entered on each line. Deficit weight calculations are automatic and fuel charges may be applied along with applicable discounts.

Create Rate disks (CD's) that may be distributed to customers. The CD's will provide the same rating environment used by your staff.  The rates you give them can be tailored to your specific agreement with them. You can provide them with one or all classes in a given tariff and provide one or many origin and destination points.  You can also include only those assessorial charges that might apply to them.
