    Writing up a guide for gov’t. which is to provide ton-mile or kg-km approximation trucking freight costs based upon truckload shipments between major points in Canada & from U.S. points to Canadian cities— all based on mile or kilometre distance between points. Some by weight & some by volumetric weight, but all assumed truckload shipments. Might you offer guidance?
