Activity and Freight rates support two different types of rate configurations, Metric Rates and Product Rates.
Metric Rates support charges that are evaluated on consignment information, regardless of the type of product that has been added to the consignment.

Product Rates support charges that are evaluated based on the product information added to the consignment. These rates can target information specific to products, such as targeting a certain product, or product group, or attributes, or a hazard class for example.
Additionally, with Product Rates, the Metric information for a product can be evaluated using Metric Conversions and Unit Conversions, allowing you to target a charge to a specific unit such as Pallets or Cartons.
