Fuel Surcharge

The instability of fuel prices often makes us feel as if we’re riding a rollercoaster. We’re all at the mercy of volatile fuel prices and it’s rarely a fun ride. Being in the transportation industry, we’re affected by this reality quite a bit. We would gladly try to predict the unknown, but our competencies don’t extend to fortune-telling, yet.

In the meantime, we’ve tackled this fuel cost variability challenge with a concept we call fuel surcharge – an amount added to the freight invoice, above the starting point of the freight base rate. What’s the best part about this fuel surcharge?

It’s the lowest in the industry! Not convinced? Transparency is very important to us. Learn about this program and consult our Fuel surcharge guide (PDF).
