The weight and size of the shipment being shipped is also a important factor
The time or duration required for the shipment process

Moreover, light-weight items that are fragile require to be shipped with utmost care and hence are classified under the freight class 125 to 500. On the other hand, relatively heavier items can be handled normally and hence fall under the freight class 50 to 85.
