A Fuel Recovery Fee (FRF) is the term applied to an additional line item on our invoices used to pass along some of the variable fuel costs we incur to our customers in a fair and transparent way.
Businesses across North America continue to see the price and volatility of fuel reach historic levels. As fuel costs have continued to escalate, our ability to absorb these price escalations in our base direct cost structure has proven to be untenable, therefore requiring that we charge the FRF on every invoice.
It has been, and remains, our focus to align our pricing with our customers’ needs while also remaining transparent and fair with required changes. As fuel pricing fluctuates, our approach is to share that pricing in an equitable manner with our customers, both as fuel costs go up and as fuel costs go down.
Fuel recovery fees will be based on data available through the U.S. Energy Information Administration and Natural Resources Canada. These two indices are published and updated by the governments of both the United States and Canada and are widely recognized as trusted and publicly available sources of information.
The FRF will be calculated and updated on a weekly basis.
