SAMPLE MILITARY PER-MILE RATES

These loads originated at the Anniston (Ala.) Army Depot in March.

AA&E: The rates are based on a single main driver team, though a second security-cleared driver team hauling an empty trailer as an escort was likewise required on this load. Per estimates, the escorts made $1.75 per mile.

SPOT BID: The rate is higher because the load was oversized; in such cases, the Pentagon pays extra to ensure against lost time.

FAK: The freight of all kinds load is ordinary except for extra security at entrances.

Fuel surcharges are included in rates. Rates exclude the PowerTrack freight payment program’s 1 percent deduction.
