Fuel Surcharges

Changes in fuel prices result in shifting costs for the transport industry, requiring a variable fuel surcharge, which may rise or fall in line with movements in fuel prices. OrangeDS uses an index-based surcharge that is adjusted monthly. Changes are applied the first Monday of each month and are reflected on your invoice.

Fuel surcharge percentages and associated trigger points are subject to change without notice. If fuel surcharge drops below 3.5% or rises above 5.75% the table above will be updated.
