Fuel Surcharges

The fuel surcharge percentage for NJLS courier services is subject to monthly adjustment based on a rounded average of the retail price of gasoline – all grades, in the Central Atlantic region, as published by the U.S. Energy Administration: http://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/pet_pri_gnd_a_epm0_pte_dpgal_m.htm.

There is a one-month lag between the fuel price index and the fuel surcharge. For example, the fuel surcharge on invoices generated on or about November, 2017 is based upon the fuel price index for the month of September, 2017.

Fuel surcharge percentages and associated trigger points are subject to change without notice. If the fuel surcharge rises above 12.50% or there are changes to the trigger points, the table above will be updated.

Fuel surcharge is assessed on basic monthly rates, as well as per-item charges, priority surcharges, weight surcharges, same day rates and out-of-state package rates. Light trucking jobs are subject to a separate fuel surcharge. For more information on light trucking jobs and their fuel surcharge, please contact us.
