Changes in the cost of petrol, diesel and other fuel types regularly affect the shipping industry. All carriers apply a fuel surcharge to their costs to take this into account. This is not something within our control, but it’s something we’re always upfront about.
You’ll see the fuel surcharge change on the first Monday of every month. It’s most recent figures were:
- Standard domestic shipments = 10.0%
- Domestic express and international shipments = 18.5%
