TOTE Maritime Alaska has filed with the Surface Transportation Board (STB) for an Alaska Fuel Surcharge Increase of one and a half (1.5%) percent. This increase will take the fuel surcharge from 12.00% to 13.50% for the Alaska service, effective May 29th, 2016.
Alaska: 13.50% of freight charges, effective May 29th, 2016
There continue to be fuel surcharges assessed on motor carrier, inter-modal and full trailer load line haul transportation as well. In some cases these are flat charges per container, in others, they are stated as a percentage of freight charges. Every attempt will be made to update the rates on this site, based on receipt of filings from carriers. Each of our invoices will detail the fuel surcharge as a separate item, based on rates in effect at the time of the shipment.
