As we are all aware, fuel prices have skyrocketed upwards and are a large factor in the cost of moving shipments over the road. Chief has implemented a fuel surcharge (FSC) that is a percentage applied to the base freight rate. All FSC charges are entered separately on the freight bill to allow the customer to easily see freight charges as well as FSC costs.

Our FSC pricing is based on the U.S. EAST COAST Average Diesel Fuel Index as is published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy. Diesel prices are published every Monday.


Below, please find both the EIA diesel index chart, and to the left, Chief`s Fuel Surcharge schedule. Keep in mind, Chief operates off of the EAST COAST average price.
