Enter the carriage rate ($/mile) and the total distance (miles) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Carriage Cost. 

Carriage Cost Formula

CAR = CR/100 * D


  • CAR is the Carriage Cost ($)
  • CR is the carriage rate ($/mile)
  • D is the total distance (miles)

To calculate the Carriage Cost, multiply the carriage rate by the distance.

How to Calculate Carriage Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Carriage Cost.

  1. First, determine the carriage rate ($/mile). 
  2. Next, determine the total distance (miles). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CAR = CR/100 * D.
  4. Finally, calculate the Carriage Cost.
  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.

carriage rate ($/mile) = 3.5

total distance (miles) = 500
