General Cargo Rate (GCR)
General cargo rates apply to the carriage of commodities that have not been allocated a specific commodity
rate or commodity classification rate. General cargo rates consist of minimum rate (M), normal rate (N), and lower charge in higher weight (Q).
Specific Commodity Rate (SCR)
Specific commodity rates are usually lower than general cargo rates and are published for particular
  commodities from a specified point of origin to a specified destination point. They are subject to a minimum weight restriction. Specific commodity rates take precedence over class rates and general cargo rates. When the class rate or the general cargo rate applicable to the consignment is lower than the Specific Commodity Rate, this lower rate can be applied. When the Class Rate is higher than the General Cargo Rate, the Class Rate takes precedence over General Cargo Rate.
Commodity Classification Rate (CCR or Class Rate)
Commodity classification rates, also known as class rates, are published for particular commodities from a
  specified point of origin to a specified destination point and are usually shown in Surcharged (S) or Reduced (R). Class Rates take precedence over General Cargo Rates regardless of comparisons.

Bulk Unitization charge (BUC)
BUC is the rate charged by carrier to shipper or freight forwarder on the basis of container or pallet.
  The charge for the consignments will consist of the minimum charge for the sector carried and the unit load device used plus the excess weight charge, if applicable, for any weight in excess of the pivot weight (maximum weight permitted at the minimum charge) shown in the table of charges.
The chargeable weight of the consignments in Unit Load Device(s) will be determined as follows
  Airline-owned ULD(s) will be charged at the actual gross weight excluding the tare weight of the ULD(s)
Shipper-owned ULD(s) will be charged at the actual gross weight less the tare weight allowance or the
   actual tare weight, whichever is lower.
