Fuel Surcharge
Current Fuel Surcharge Rate for Package Services:
Through November 02, 2014: 19.50%
Effective November 03, 2014: 18.50%


Fuel Surcharge
UPS uses an index-based surcharge that is adjusted monthly. Changes to the applicable surcharge are effective on the first Monday of each month, and posted on the UPS website approximately two weeks prior to the effective date. The surcharge applicable in each month is determined based on the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) price for kerosene-type jet fuel reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) two months prior to the adjustment, rounded to the nearest cent. For example, the surcharge applied in February 2013 is based on the rounded figure of the (USGC) Jet Fuel Price reported by the EIA in December 2012.

The table below sets forth the applicable Fuel Surcharge for the corresponding USGC Jet Fuel Price thresholds (rounded to the nearest cent) in any one month.  Should the USGC Jet Fuel Price rises beyond the stated thresholds, the table will be updated accordingly. UPS reserves the right to amend the table without prior notice.
