• This is a fee added to the sticker price of a car which is supposed to reflect what it costs to ship the car from the point of manufacture (or import?) to the dealer. I don't know if there is a standard for this (e.g. $150 per ton?), or if there is any connection with the actual cost of delivering the car.
  • The destination charge is intended to reflect the average cost of shipping the vehicle from its point of manufacture to the final selling location. Most manufacturers "standardize" this fee, which means that the destination charge will be the same whether you bought the car across the street from the assembly plant, or 3000 miles away.
