is a variable fuel surcharge used by freight and courier companies to recoup costs for fuel increases at the pump. This can change weekly and sometimes daily in this climate. This charge will appear on invoices for products/services as a separate entry on invoices from Courier Solutions.
are Road User Charges that trucking companies must pay based on the maximum weight that a truck can potentially move. Prior to August 1st, this charge was based on the minimum weight that a truck could carry, hence this additional charge from some carriers.
