Definitions for "Pivot Weight"
In aircargo: minimum weight with which a unit load device (ULD) may be charged.
The weight at which the lower rate applies next to the published rate in the tariff.
For shipments moving at container rates, it is the weight at which an additional charge is incurred for each pound over the picot weight. For shipments moving at bulk rates, the pivot weight is the weight at which it becomes less costly to pay the minimum charge at the higher weight break, than to pay for the actual weight at the lower weight break.
