Fuel Surcharge

To manage volatility in fuel prices, starting on September 1, 2008, a differentiated fuel surcharge will apply to Parcel shipments, based on the service selected: either Express1 or Non-Express2. A higher fuel surcharge rate will apply to Express services, such as Priority™ and Xpresspost (Domestic, USA and International) compared to our Non-Express services, such as Regular Parcel and Expedited Parcel (Domestic and USA).

Effective December 1, 2014 through January 4, 2015 the following fuel surcharges will apply:

Service Surcharge
Express1 10.25%
Non-Express2 5.25%
PriorityTM Worldwide 10.00%

The estimated surcharges effective January 5, 2015 through February 1, 2015:
