Fuel Surcharge

We pay fuel surcharge on all dispatched miles (loaded and deadhead), and our fuel surcharge increases faster than most (every $.05 instead of every $.10 like most carriers). We also pay a higher fuel surcharge amount than others. See the examples below.

Fuel Surcharge Examples
Annual National
Fuel Cost Average
Fuel Surcharge 2,500 miles Fuel Surcharge 115,000 miles
2016 = $2.30/gallon = $475 = $21,850
2015 = $2.71/gallon = $650 = $29,900
2014 = $3.82/gallon = $1,125 = $51,750

Fuel Discount Program

Our drivers enjoy a fuel discount program with reductions comparable or better than large fleet carriers. This amounts to huge savings!

Fuel Discount Examples (estimated)
Annual National Fuel Discount Average 2,500 miles 115,000 miles Savings on 150 gallons Savings on 250 gallons
2016 = $.29/gallon = $121 = $5,558 = $43.50 = $72.50
2015 = $.34/gallon = $142 = $6,517 = $51 = $85
2014 = $.28/gallon = $117 = $5,367 = $42 = $70
