Overview


The FedEx Express® fuel surcharge is based on the spot price for jet fuel and it applies to all FedEx Express services except FedEx International Premium™ (IP1) and FedEx® International Express Freight (IXF).* FedEx has adopted a fuel surcharge calculation method for FedEx Express services based on the fuel price published monthly by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The FedEx Ground® fuel surcharge is based on the rounded average of the national U.S. on-highway average price for a gallon of diesel fuel. FedEx has adopted a fuel surcharge calculation method for FedEx Ground services based on the fuel price published monthly by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The applicable transportation-related surcharges are as follows: Extended Service Area Surcharge, Saturday Pickup or Delivery Surcharge and the Residential Delivery Surcharge. For FedEx Ground shipments, fuel surcharges are assessed on net package rate plus applicable transportation-related surcharges including electronic call tag, manual call tag, oversize and unauthorized oversize packages, residential delivery, and rural delivery.

Changes to the FedEx Freight intra-Canada fuel surcharges will be applied Monday of each week. The surcharge will be reflected on your FedEx invoice. Information on the fuel surcharge for each week will be available the Friday before the surcharge is applicable. For FedEx Freight intra-Canada shipments, the related fuel surcharge is assessed on the net shipment rate plus applicable transportation related surcharges.
