Advanced Charge

Any fee paid by a carrier to another carrier, a forwarding agent, or even to a shipper, which the carrier subsequently recovers from the consignee, is known as an advanced charge.

What is Advanced Charge?

Advanced Charge is an optional feature that prolongs the usable life of a system’s batteries by charging them to full capacity only once per day, prior to the Start of day you establish when you enable Advanced Charge. For the remainder of the day, Advanced Charge keeps batteries in a lower charge state that is better for storage, even when the system is plugged into a direct power source.
