Fuel surcharge

Changes in fuel prices result in fluctuating costs for the transport industry, necessitating a variable fuel surcharge which may be adjusted in line with movements in fuel prices. Speedlink uses an index-based surcharge that is adjusted monthly. The FSC is based on the monthly average spot prices for US Gulf Coast (USGC), as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy. Due to the publication dates, there will be a two month lag in the application of these changes. For example, the monthly average price for fuel in November is used to determine the applicable surcharge for January.The actual fuel surcharge percentage posted below will apply for the period as specified.
