Freight All Kinds (FAK)
Freight All Kinds (FAK) serves as a pricing mechanism commonly employed by many Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) carriers, grouping various ranges of freight classes together, allowing them to be billed or rated at a consistent class.
Freight All Kinds (FAK) is a shipping and logistics term that refers to a pricing structure used by carriers and shippers to simplify and streamline the shipping process. Furthermore, under a Freight All Kinds arrangement, various types of cargo with different classifications and shipping rates are bundled together and charged at a single, often negotiated, rate. Thus, this means that different commodities or goods can be shipped together under a single Freight All Kinds rate, regardless of their individual classifications or pricing structures.
Freight All Kinds (FAK) rates are usually agreed upon through negotiations between a shipper and a carrier. Moreover, the carrier might have specific criteria that the shipper needs to fulfill to be eligible for an FAK rate.
Criteria Shippers Need to Become Eligible For a Freight All Kinds Rate:
The shipment must be easily packable and stackable.
The shipment must meet a minimum freight charge.
The shipment must contain a minimum number of different NMFC classes.
The shipper must frequently and regularly book shipments with the carrier.
