What is a Tariff?
Tariff means a publication containing the actual rates, charges, classifications, rules, regulations, and practices of a common carrier or a conference of common carriers. The term "practices" refers to those usages, customs or modes of operation which in any way affect, determine or change the transportation rates, charges or services provided by a common carrier or conference.
One of the primary functions of the publication of tariffs is to provide the shipping public with accessible and reliable information on the price and service options to move particular commodities from point A to point B.
Shippers should be able to use this information to compare competing carriers' offerings and to assess whether they are being unreasonably discriminated against vis-Zi-vis their competitors. In addition, public tariff information enables carriers to monitor their competitors and to gain a complete picture of the marketplace in a particular trade.
