2018 Fuel Surcharge Changes

Effective August 13th, 2018, the table used to calculate fuel surcharges for FedEx Express Canadian-export and Canadian-import shipments will change.

Canadian Export/Canadian Import FedEx Express Fuel Surcharge Table

The Canadian Export/Canadian Import FedEx Express fuel surcharge is based on the U.S. spot price for jet fuel and it applies to all FedEx Express Canadian export and Canadian import services except FedEx International PremiumTM (IP1) and FedEx® International Express Freight (IXF).^ FedEx has adopted a fuel surcharge calculation method for Canadian export/Canadian import FedEx Express services which is subject to weekly adjustment based on a rounded average of the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel.

There is a two-week lag between the fuel price index and the fuel surcharge. For example, the fuel surcharge for February 6th 2017 is based on the average U.S. jet fuel spot price published by the U.S. Department of Energy on February 1st 2017.

The fuel surcharge percentages and associated trigger points are subject to change without notice. If the fuel surcharge drops below 5.00% or rises above 11.75%, the table below will be updated.
