Fuel Surcharge

Effective March 6, 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.

Historical Fuel Surcharge Rates

Fuel Surcharge

A fuel surcharge is levied on all domestic services.

The fuel surcharge is levied on the total invoice value per waybill prior to VAT being applied. The surcharge percentage will be reflected on your FedEx Express invoice. Information on the fuel surcharge for each month, if changed, will be available approximately two weeks before the surcharge is applicable.

The fuel surcharge is reviewed monthly in line with the change in the fuel price as published by the Department of Energy in South Africa on the first Wednesday of every month. The published fuel price for a particular month is used as the basis to determine the fuel price adjustment for the following month.
