FR8 Transport Cost Calculator

Calculating the transportation cost of a full truck load is not easy. The cost of hiring a full truck depends on 3 factors.

  • Operational cost: Operational cost of running a truck, which includes diesel cost, driver salary, and toll tax or fast tag expense. Diesel contributes to 50% of the running cost of a truck. Driver cost is about 15%, and fasttag is about 15%. All together, 80% of the cost is the operational cost of running a truck.
  • Fixed cost: Fixed cost of running a truck includes monthly loan repayment, or EMI repayment, which is 15% of the cost. Another 5% is miscellaneous costs, which include annual costs like maintenance, insurance, and road tax.
  • Supply and demand factor: This is the most changing factor out of the three. For example, hiring a 32 feet multi axle from Chennai to Kolkata cost Rs 90,000. Wherein the same truck from Kolkata to Chennai cost Rs 53,000. Market prices are determined by the availability of trucks for a particular route. Industrial hubs like Chennai, Mumbai, and Gujarat always have more demand for trucks than supply of trucks. Vice versa, consumption cities like Ranchi, Kolkata, and Guwahati have more supply than demand for trucks. This plays a vital role in determining truck transport costs.

Truck load rates India

Truck load rates are the price that a trucking company charges to transport a full truckload of goods. The rate is usually based on the distance that the goods will be shipped, the type of goods being shipped, and the availability of trucks to transport the goods. Other factors that can impact truck load rates include fuel costs, tolls, and the demand for trucking services. Trucking rates can differ widely depending on these and other factors, and it is important for companies to carefully consider their shipping needs and budget when selecting a trucking company.

Briefing

The cost per KM of a transport truck in India depends on various factors such as truck types.

  • The content they carry (volumetric [candies] or dense loads [auto parts]).
  • Age of the truck (maintenance and EMI costs vary accordingly).
  • Size of the fleet and, also of the fleet owner (a larger fleet owned by an owner impacts maintenance costs by up to 15%).
  • Truck Make (Some trucks brands deliver a slightly higher mileage and this difference is essential to an extent in the total capital cost).
  • Geographical lanes in which the trucks operate (diesel prices vary across the country, so do tolls and traffic fines/penalties. This is an important factor as tolerance for overloading/Over dimensions varies across the country thereby limiting the maximum loaded weight of a truck. Rajasthan-Gujrat border is the strictest in the country for this).
  • Type of market the truck services (if a truck services big brands they have very high compliance requirements from the truck such as tyre depth, specific truck floor requirements, truck body requirements eg. Glass manufacturers such as Saint Gobain require very strong truck sides which requires additional reinforcements and investment from the fleet owner). Type of customers a truck services.
  • Seasonality (Diwali season in North, pre-Diwali season for paint customer increases loading and unloading waiting periods as these are sales peaks, though these do not have a very high impact when averaged out over the year).

Variation in Rating

Rates vary considerably for full truck load (FTL) and less than truckload (LTL) as does the cost structure. Again when you say commodities, rates are cheaper than for say Container trailers and are very high for project transport (think the ODC, super ODC cargo). Below mentioned is a brief overview of a typical 20", dry container transport traffic. For an instance (anonymous), I work in the logistics sector, and have worked with a large road transport company in a strategic capacity - so saw all pricing and rates up-close. The Cost Structure - if your spend is Rs 100, the costs are broken up as follows.


There are many in-between calculations, eg. Pooja charges are deductible at 100Rs. per day. Loading and un-loading charges have to be paid by the Driver from his 17 paise. FastTag charges are dealt by the owner. The Driver keeps and account of all expenses, fuel, commission paid to get load etc. Its extremely complicated and time consuming to estimate the exact expenses.

  • Fuel – 40%
  • Tolls – 14%
  • Vehicle EMI – 17%
  • Wages – 11%
  • Tire wear & tear – 6-8% (better quality tyres = higher upfront cost but better longevity. Sad tyres at start = lower upfront but greater replacement costs).
  • Maintenance – 5% 
  • Others – bribes (used to be as high as 10% pre GST and checkpoint era), Insurance, Fitness cert, police/accidents etc.

Now this varies within the industry as for a 2 truck fleet operator, operating in the Broker market, wages and maintenance will be lower (overheads) but fuel and dep will be higher. Lots of arrangements & combinations here.

Insights

Below is the cost structure of Indian trucking industry as per a study conducted in 2019. The figure is taken directly from their report for the purpose of better understanding on this subject. Scale is the name of the game: To organize the market, players need to start creating an eco-system as they can provide important cost benefit to customers.

Real Time Example

There is a place called Sankagiri near Salem in Tamil Nadu. Everyone in the town is somehow or the other connected to the trucking business. So much so that Ashok Leyland till a few years back sold a model called ‘Sankagiri Express’. The business system they follow there is the Owner rents the truck out to the Driver. The Driver gets paid 17 paise per kilometre and the truck is out running loads for 15+ days at a time. After 15+ days the truck returns and the Driver hands over the earnings to the Owner minus his 17 paise per kilometre. There are many in-between calculations, eg. Pooja charges are deductible at 100Rs. per day. Loading and un-loading charges have to be paid by the Driver from his 17 paise. FastTag charges are dealt by the owner. The Driver keeps and account of all expenses, fuel, commission paid to get load etc. Its extremely complicated and time consuming to estimate the exact expenses.

E.g. Tyres

Trucks come with steel belted radials from the show room, they get exchanged immediately for tubeless tyres. The branded ones cost 35,000 a pair when checked last time, many use ‘Chinese tyres’ that cost 22,000 a pair. Tyres last from anywhere between 75,000 to 90,000 and then get retreaded to last another 40,000 kilometres. A tyre can be retreaded twice. Some tyres burst and last only 20,000 – 40,000 kilometres – when new, some cannot be retreaded. Some can be retreaded only once, so very difficult to calculate the cost overall.

Also, fuel expenses vary from place – to – place. On highways its 3+kmpl on ghat sections & its 1.5liters per kilometre. Depends on which route the truck gets load for. Trucking in the olden days used to be a 6 wheel affair, then with the 2213 from TATA it moved to 10 wheels, for sometime tractor tailers dominated, nowadays its the multi axle trucks, with anything from 10 to 20 tyres with 3 to 6 axles. There are all types of configurations, twin steer to 2 lift axles. Right now the winner is the Ashok Leyland 3520, with 2 twin steer axles in front and 8 tyres at the back in 2 axles, 1 drive and 1 dummy axle.

The FR8 live transportation rates/freight calculator makes life easier for manufacturers, shippers, transporters, and truck owners by aiding spot market negotiations. Live truck transportation rates are similar to share prices on the stock exchange; these are traded prices on the FR8 platform. It can be used by truck owners and transporters alike for spot rate negotiation. Transporters can use them for reverse auctions to find truck rent per km, and shippers can use them to arrive at the cost of transportation in terms of freight rate per tonne per km. The business system they follow there is the Owner rents the truck out to the Driver. The Driver gets paid 17 paise per kilometre and the truck is out running loads for 15+ days at a time. After 15+ days the truck returns and the Driver hands over the earnings to the Owner minus his 17 paise per kilometre.

Conclusion

Truck load rates vary from organization to organization. It depends on several factors that needs to be considered while setting the load rate. The above mentioned points are some of the significant elements that goes into account in the process. Get to know more about truck load rates and get a brief insight on this very subject.
