A two hour average dwell time at the origin increases the freight rate for every load shipped from that origin by an average of $9.83 (in addition to any detention charges). This finding is consistent with structured carrier interviews suggesting that carriers focus on 2 primary metrics when they price: how to get more revenue-generating miles and how to get more revenue-generating hours.
