January 2015 Fuel Surcharge

Friday, January 02, 2015

Effective January 1st, 2015 the fuel surcharge will be reduced 2 %. The current FSC will be 23%.

There were significant reductions in rack prices all across Western Canada. The reductions were 4 cents per litre more that in Eastern Canada, which has narrowed the price difference. The U.S. market also saw reductions in diesel fuel prices, however, the reductions were only 50 % of what occurred in Western Canada.  The reduction of prices in the US has been offset with the weakening of the Canadian dollar in the past year and strong demand for diesel in the strengthening US and Canadian economies, which has kept the prices from coming down as fast as gasoline.

April 2014 Fuel Surcharge

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

After reviewing recent rack pricing in Canada and cash prices in the USA, a significant lowering trend occurred in Eastern Canada and to a lesser extent in Western Canada.  US prices did not move up as much in March as Canadian pricing especially compared with Western Canada, therefore the drop in US prices has not been as significant. The US exchange rate has also stabilized at the moment which was also causing prices to rise for Canadian carriers from January to March.

 The position for April is that the fuel surcharge will come down 1% from 33% to 32%. April fuel surcharge is effective from April 1, 2014 until April 30, 2014.

If you have any questions regarding fuel surcharge please call our office at 204.233.3566 or email us at info@jadetransport.com.

March 2014 Fuel Surcharge

Monday, March 03, 2014
The steady increase in diesel fuel prices in the USA in the past several weeks warrants a 1% increase in our fuel surcharge. The increase in Canadian rack prices has not been as high as the US, however, we saw steady increases in the past three months in Canada which we didn’t see so much in the US market. This was partially a function of our weakening Canadian dollar and supply issues in Canada. Now the US market is steadily moving to higher pricing.

Recently the events in the Ukraine and the belligerence of the Russian Federation in its violation of Ukrainian sovereignty, will most likely have an effect on oil and gas prices worldwide in the weeks ahead.

The March FSC will go up to 33 %. Fuel surcharge is effective from March 1, 2014 to March 31, 2014.
