Why are delivery, shipping & handling costs (S&H) estimated and not final?

These costs are estimated because there are many factors that affect the cost of delivery.  Some of these variables are actual weight, volume weight, final number of boxes or pallets, inside or dock deliveries, domestic or commercial address.  Plus, fuel surcharges are assessed by most carriers and will fluctuate with fuel costs.  Therefore, your S&H cost may be different on the final bill/invoice.
