Fuel Surcharge Rate in December 2019

2019.11.19
  • Fuel surcharge has been applied to Standard Express service and Economy Express service since 1st June, 2019.

     

    Fuel surcharge for each shipment is assessed on the net freight charge in accordance with the fuel surcharge percentage. The percentage of fuel surcharge is based on the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) price for kerosene-type jet fuel published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) two months earlier. For example, the rate applied in June 2019 is based on the rounded figure of the (USGC) Jet Fuel Price published by the EIA in April 2019. Please refer to EIA's (USGC) Jet Fuel Prices on EIA's website.

     

    The fuel surcharge percentage will be revised monthly and be effective from the 1st of each month, and it will be published one week before the month ends on our official website. Decimal places in the calculation of the fuel surcharge will be rounded off to the nearest integer.

     

    Please refer to below table for the fuel surcharge percentage for shipments paid in Japan:

    Example:

    If the freight is JPY 1,500 and the fuel surcharge percentage of the month is 13.5%, then the fuel surcharge is calculated as: 1,500×13.5%=202.5, rounded off to 203.

     

    Therefore, the total freight charge = freight + fuel surcharge = 1,500+203=1,703.               

    The total freight charge to be paid by customer is JPY 1,703.

     

    If the shipment freight is paid in other destinations rather than Japan, please refer to the following chart for the fuel surcharge percentage.
