Have your carriers asked for rate increases to cover higher fuel costs? If so, how did
you react to their request? The answer to that question probably hinges on whether or not you knew at the time that fuel surcharges don’t compensate carriers for all fuel-related operating costs.
Fuel surcharge calculations are based on a loaded-mile formula. Empty miles between the terminal and the client loading site — such as miles from the carrier’s latest delivery to you or miles to the terminal for equipment repairs, trailer change-outs or tank cleaning — are not calculated as part of fuel surcharges.

The carriers are undoubtedly paid enough for fuels. These surcharges however, do not compensate carriers for all fuel-related operating costs.
