The obvious rise in fuel costs are apparent to everyone. We restructured our rates to accommodate for this expense assuming $2.00 a gallon as our base rate. In order to be fair to all parties involved we have created a fuel fee that corresponds to the rise and fall of fuel beyond $2.00 a gallon. Our drivers average 10 gallons a day therefore every $0.10 increase equals a dollar a day increase. At $2.50 a gallon their expense increases $100.00 a month. We simply cover that expense.
Example of Fuel Fee
Our fuel fee = .05% for every $0.10 increase in fuel costs.
Example Based on an invoice = $500.00
Cost of Gas Fuel Fee% Total of Invoice
$2.20 1% $505.00
$2.50 2.5% $512.50
$2.80 4% $520.00
