Regularly get fuel surcharges that are way out of wack, especially for shorthauls. Or perhaps I'm out of touch with how much fuel costs. Was quoted $2000.00 today plus $728 for fuel on a 288 mile haul.. so that works out to $728/288 which is $2.53/mile... and that's just the surcharge! No wonder some shippers are calling out the industry on fuel surcharges. I've gone back to quoting all in rates.. good for 90 days... that's how we did it in the old days. Shippers like it because they know what they're getting..its just one number.. makes it easier for them too.
