Fuel Levy (Surcharge)

How does it work?

The cost of fuel is one of the biggest expenses for any transport company and varies dramatically with movements in market prices. Pickering Transport Group incorporates a Fuel Levy so that your freight rates are kept stable. Movements in the fuel price purchases are tracked on a weekly basis and averaged out for the proceeding months. We are then able to generate the applicable fuel levy for the upcoming month. This allows us to inform you ahead of time if there will be an increase or a favourable decrease. Please refer to the table below:
