Fuel Surcharge

See Previous Fuel Surcharges

The fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx Express services is subject to monthly adjustment based on a rounded average of the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel.

The fuel surcharge rate for FedEx Express® services applies to FedEx Express International export and import transportation charges published in Europe, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and Africa.

This fuel surcharge does not apply to FedEx International Express Freight® (IXF) and FedEx International Airport-to-Airport® (ATA) services (where available).

Note that the US Department of Energy (EIA) has discontinued its publication of the Rotterdam (ARA) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel. Therefore, as of December 6th, 2010, FedEx will use the USGC (U.S. Gulf Coast Kerosene-Type Jet Fuel Spot Price) published by the EIA.

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, see the USGC index for the spot price per gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel.
  • The prices in these indexes are published by the U.S. Department of Energy and FedEx is not responsible for the information provided.
  • There is a two-month lag between the fuel price index and the fuel surcharge. For example, the fuel surcharge for December 2010 is based on the October 2010 average spot price of fuel.
