Fuel Surcharge

The fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx Express services is adjusted each month, and is based on a rounded average of the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel two months earlier. The fuel surcharge applies to all FedEx Express® services, except FedEx International Express Freight® (IXF) and FedEx International Airport-to-Airport (ATA) services.

The fuel surcharge for each shipment is assessed on the net freight charge and the following transportation-related surcharges:

- Broker Routing Fee (Broker Select);
- Out of Delivery Area (ODA);
- Out of Pickup Area (OPA);
- Residential Delivery Surcharge (RESI)
- Saturday Delivery (SDL); and,
- Saturday Pickup (SPU).
