Fuel Surcharge Details

The fuel surcharge is tied to the cost of the diesel fuel that our vehicles use to make deliveries.

It is based on the four-week average East Coast diesel price published by the U.S. Department of Energy*. In general, this figure will be adjusted once a month should that average fall within a different band. The chart below illustrates the current fuel surcharge fee schedule.
