Based upon the currently reported U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index, ABF's fuel surcharge is now applicable. The current ABF LTL fuel surcharge is 28.4%.

The level of the fuel surcharge is adjusted on Wednesday based upon the U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index of the prior Monday. If the National Average Fuel Index is not updated on the prior Monday, the next updated National Average Fuel Index posted prior to Wednesday will be used to calculate the fuel surcharge level for that week beginning on Wednesday and ending on Tuesday of the following week. In the event the National Average Fuel Index is not updated by Tuesday, the previous week’s index will be used. This index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy, is available by telephone at 202-586-6966 and on their Internet site.

The fuel surcharge will be shown as a separate entry on our freight bill and will be applied to all line-haul charges, with applicable discounts, but not to special service charges.

For further explanation, see the ABF Rules and Special Service Charges Guide Item 161.
