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

Month Surcharge
December 2018 19.75%
November 2018 19.25%
October 2018 17.75%


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.


Jet Fuel Index (USD per gallon)


The fuel surcharge applies to transportation charges on all services and to the following surcharges (where applicable):

  • Non Standard Pickup/Delivery
  • Remote Area Pickup/Delivery
  • Restricted Destination
  • Over Weight Piece
  • Over Sized Piece
  • Over Handled Piece

MadibanaSA reserves the right to change the fuel surcharge index and table with or without notice. Both the amount and duration of the surcharge will be determined at MadibanaSA’s sole discretion.
