How does shipping work?

I have a hw assignment, and I need to know how companies CHARGE for shipping. By weight? Quantity? Or what?

In the trucking industry shipping charges vary. Some loads pay by weight, some are a flat rate, some pay based on mileage. There are also things like fuel surcharge and loading or unloading fees that come into play. It really depends on the freight and the broker.
