courier fuel charge

Transportation and courier services are services directly related to the price of road and air pump fuel for the regulated price of kerosene for international air deliveries (US Gulf Coast (USGC) price for kerosene-type jet fuel as reported by the US Energy Information Administration (THEY).

The fuel index for all services is adjusted monthly on the first day of the month. According to the legal regulations, the fuel index is automatically applied in the service invoices and is strictly related to the value of the transport, without application to additional services such as reimbursement or insurance.


Consequently, in order to offer a fair price to customers, TCE applies a different fuel index to road and air services, due to the different evolution between the price of road fuel at the pump and the price of kerosene.  

Fuel price fluctuations influence costs in the courier and transportation industry, which has led to the introduction of a variable fuel index that can increase, decrease or disappear, depending on fuel price fluctuations.
