Why do courier services providers charge fuel surcharge?
Fuel represents a significant variable cost in the provision of transportation services. Employing a variable fuel surcharge allows courier companies to avoid frequent changes in its base shipping rates and allows the overall cost of shipping to vary (both up and down) with the market price of fuel. If there is one thing which dominates the expenses faced within a courier company, outside of the costs of the vehicles and the wages paid to employees, then it is probably the amount which is spent on fuel. However, there is something that is different about the fuel costs that are faced by a courier company compared to many of their other costs. Instead of being something that is paid by the company directly, in most cases, the courier drivers have to bear the cost of the fuel which goes into their vehicles.  The rises in fuel prices which are seen periodically across the country are certainly not anything which is in the control of either the courier company or their drivers. Therefore, when these spikes in the fuel expenses are seen, the courier company applies the surcharge. That amount is then passed on directly to the drivers to offset the costs they have to pay for their gas.
