A fuel surcharge is in effect to offset the impact of the increase in fuel prices. The surcharge will apply to net freight charges. The surcharge will be calculated utilizing the Department of Energy average diesel fuel price National Average. The index is available from the Department of Energy each Monday by calling (202) 586-6966 or following the link below:
NTC applies fuel surcharge charge changes on the same day that the National Average Diesel Fuel Price is published by the Department of Energy. Fuel prices are based on historical data not price futures so we feel this is an equitable solution.
