For FedEx Accounts With a Monthly Fuel Surcharge Calculation

The information on this page is for FedEx accounts that have contracted for a monthly fuel surcharge calculation frequency. Additional information is available on the Fuel Surcharges page.

Changes to the FedEx Express and FedEx Ground fuel surcharges will be applied effective the first Monday of each month unless such changes are introduced after said date, in which case the changes will be applied as of the effective date of the change. The surcharge percentage will be reflected on your FedEx invoice. Information on the fuel surcharge for each month will be available approximately one week before the surcharge is applicable.

The fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx Express® services (excluding U.S. Domestic Express Freight) and the charge per pound for U.S. Domestic Express Freight services are subject to monthly* adjustment based on the monthly published U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel.

The fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx Ground® services is subject to monthly* adjustment based on the monthly published national U.S. on-highway average price for a gallon of diesel fuel.

Effective Nov. 1, 2021

FedEx regularly reviews its fuel surcharge and will update tables for FedEx Express (domestic package and freight services), FedEx Ground, and FedEx Freight shipments. See fuel surcharge tables effective Nov. 1, 2021.

*For FedEx accounts that have contracted for a different calculation frequency for any FedEx Express or FedEx Ground service, that same contracted calculation frequency may apply for all FedEx Express and FedEx Ground services. Notwithstanding any information provided herein, the customer agreement is the final authority for all matters related to the customer’s fuel surcharge calculation and the frequency of the calculation adjustment.
