Cost Per Mile Calculator

Know your costs. Grow your profits.


As an owner of a trucking company, one of the most important things you can do before you start negotiating freight rates with shippers and brokers is to understand your cost per mile.

You’ll need the following information to complete the calculation:

  • Fixed Costs – These costs stay the same month to month.
  • Variable Costs – These costs can increase or decrease based upon the number of miles you drive each month.
  • Total Miles Driven – This number helps you determine your total cost per mile.
  • Total Revenue – This number helps you determine your profit per mile.
