Fuel Surcharge
Current Fuel Surcharge Rate:
Through 31 August 2014: 16.00%
Effective 01 September 2014: 16.00%


All Express Services and Expedited Service Fuel Surcharges
UPS uses an index-based surcharge that is adjusted monthly. Changes to the surcharge will be effective the first Monday of each month, and posted approximately two weeks prior to the effective date. The surcharge will be based on the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) prices for kerosene-type jet fuel as reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) for the month that is two months prior to the adjustment, rounded up or down to the nearest cent. For example, the surcharge for February is based on the December U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) Jet Fuel Price.

The Europe Domestic Air/International Air will be set in relation to the following table:
