Does ups freight hire outside carriers?
Yes it does. UPS can only carry up to 150 pounds. After that they use their contracted outside carrier. But you still pay UPS and you get a tracking number.
Is it legal to mark up freight charges?
It really kind of depends if the charges are far out of line. Freight charges should be equal to the actual cost of shipping the freight. The charges however can and often do
include handling. Handling charges have come under government scrutiny lately. The amounts charged for handling should be able to be justified with a costing analysis usually through a generally recognized business method of allocating costs. If the handling portion of fees charged are significantly higher than the costs allocated to handling, this could cause legal issues for the company.
