Fuel Surcharge

Effective May 1, 2017, the fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx Express shipments is subject to weekly adjustment*. The fuel surcharge is based on a weekly fuel price from two weeks prior to the week in which it is assessed.

*Fuel surcharge on Inbound/third-party shipments from certain countries may continue to be subject to monthly adjustment.

See Previous Fuel Surcharges

 


The fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx Express services is subject to weekly adjustment based on the weekly published 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.
