What is an air cargo tariff?
A tariff is a concept that encompasses sectoral air cargo rates published by each carrier and related rules.
  The "rate" is the amount charged by the carrier for the carriage of a unit of weight and may differ from actual selling rates. The "rate" is the amount inserted into the Air Waybill (AWB) and is the basis for discount.

  The routing of the shipment needs not correspond to the routing on which the freight calculations are based.
