Fuel Surcharge Calculator

Currently there is no rule, law or regulation mandating the pass-through of Fuel Surcharge. Knowing your Cost of Operation is still your key to success. This app is just a tool to assist you in knowing the “Freight Rate” you need to move your truck.

* Fuel Price Base Line – This is the fuel cost amount you used in figuring your cost of operation. The US Department of Defense Fuel Price Base Line is currently $2.50 per gallon.

** Average Diesel Fuel Price – Commonly used is the US Dept. of Energy's posted average diesel price; updated every Monday. It can be found here. It is more cost effective to calculate on a weekly average vs. daily.
