Enter the total cost ($) and the barge weight (tons) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Barge Rate. 

Barge Rate Formula

BR = TC / W


  • BR is the Barge Rate ($/ton)
  • TC is the total cost ($)
  • W is the barge weight (tons)

To calculate the Barge Rate, divide the cost by the barge weight.

How to Calculate Barge Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Barge Rate.

  1. First, determine the total cost ($). 
  2. Next, determine the barge weight (tons). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BR = TC / W.
  4. Finally, calculate the Barge Rate.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total cost ($) = 45849

barge weight (tons) = 12
