The FedEx Express® fuel surcharge is based on the spot price for jet fuel and applies to all FedEx Express services except FedEx® International Express Freight. 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.
Changes to the FedEx Express and FedEx Ground® fuel surcharges will be applied effective the first Monday of each month. The surcharge percentage will be reflected on your FedEx invoice. Information on the fuel surcharge for each month will be available approximately two weeks before the surcharge is applicable.
For FedEx Express shipments, the related fuel surcharge is assessed on the net shipment rate plus applicable transportation-related surcharges. 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.
