Notes:

  • Ground Shipments Fuel Surcharge
    YRC Freight adjusts the ground shipments surcharge on Wednesdays, based on the U.S. National Average Fuel Index of the previous Monday. The fuel index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is available by telephone at 202-586-6966 or via the U.S.National Average Fuel Index.
  • Truckload (TL) = total weight of shipment > 20,000 lb or shipments on which Exclusive Use (Item 470), Cubic Capacity (Item 575) or Capacity Load (Item 390) apply. For each one-cent increment (or portion thereof) over 431.0 cents, the LTL fuel surcharge will increase an additional 0.1 percentage point. The TL fuel surcharge will be 2x the respective LTL fuel surcharge rounded to the nearest hundredth of a percent.
    Example: If the U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index is between 532.0 and 533.0, the LTL fuel surcharge would be 44.1 percent, and the TL fuel surcharge would be 88.2 percent (44.1 * 2).
  • YRC Freight Time-Critical Air Fuel Surcharge (Jet)
    We adjust the jet fuel surcharge for air shipments on Thursdays, based on the U.S. Gulf Coast Jet Fuel Index of the weekly average for two weeks before the current date. The fuel index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the DOE, is available here.
  • YRC Freight Time-Critical Dedicated Equipment Fuel Surcharge (DEG)
    We adjust the fuel surcharge on Thursdays, based on the National Average Fuel Index of the previous Monday. The fuel index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the DOE, is available here.
  • YRC Freight Mileage Fuel Surcharge
    We adjust the mileage-based fuel surcharge on Thursdays, based on the National Average Fuel Index of the previous Monday. The fuel index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the DOE, is available here.
