Enter the transportation cost ($) and the total distance (miles) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Transportation Rate. 

Transportation Rate Formula

TR = TC / D


  • TR is the Transportation Rate ($/mile)
  • TC is the transportation cost ($)
  • D is the total distance (miles)

To calculate the Transportation Rate, divide the transportation cost by the distance.

How to Calculate Transportation Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Transportation Rate.

  1. First, determine the transportation cost ($). 
  2. Next, determine the total distance (miles). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TR = TC / D.
  4. Finally, calculate the Transportation 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.

transportation cost ($) = 883

total distance (miles) = 10
