Fuel Surcharge

Changes in fuel prices result in fluctuating costs for the transport industry, necessitating a variable fuel surcharge which may rise, fall or be removed, in line with movements in fuel prices.

Domestic and International Time Definite services

Effective Start Date Surcharge
03/08/2020 13.75%
06/07/2020 13.00%
01/06/2020 10.00%

The fuel surcharge for international Time Definite and Day Definite services will be based on the monthly average spot prices for US Gulf CoastExternal Link / New Window: US Gulf Coast (USGC) kerosene-type jet fuel, as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy.

There will be a two month lag in the application of the index. For example, the monthly average price for fuel in January is used to determine the applicable surcharge for March. This is due to the release dates of the spot pricing data.
