Fuel Surcharge

The OnTrac Fuel Surcharge is index-based and adjusted weekly. The Fuel Surcharge is assessed on the net package Rate plus all additional fees and Surcharges, as applicable.

The Fuel Surcharge will be based on the National U.S. Average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price as most recently released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), that is one (1) week prior to the adjustment, rounded to the nearest cent. For example, the Fuel Surcharge for the week of February 5, 2024, will be based on the National U.S. Average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price released by EIA for the week of January 29, 2024. If the information released by the EIA is delayed, OnTrac may use released applicable fuel pricing information from an earlier calendar week.

Changes to Fuel Surcharges will be effective on the following Monday of an applicable calendar week. Fuel Surcharge percentages and thresholds are subject to change without prior notice. If the Fuel Surcharge falls outside the published range, the range will extend in $0.12 increments and the Fuel Surcharge will adjust in 0.25% increments.
