Fort Erie, ON – The Freight Carriers Association of Canada and the North American Transportation Council have announced the updating of their software rating products to become effective April 6, 2015.  The updates reflect cost increase and market conditions in both Canada and the U.S. and changes to the Canadian postal codes and U.S. zip codes.


Fuel cost changes are excluded from the calculations as these are handled by individual carrier fuel surcharges.  The impact of this update for FCA Canadian Domestic rates and for NATC Cross Border rates is approximately 4.8%.


For over 60 years, the Freight Carriers Association of Canada and the North American Transportation Council have been recognized for their expertise on matters related to Canadian Domestic and U.S.-Canada for-hire trucking.


The Freight Carriers Association of Canada (FCA) specializes in for-hire trucking in the Canadian domestic market.


The North American Transportation Council (NATC) specializes in the Canada-U.S. for-hire trucking market.
