Shippers Using Fuel to Save

A benchmarking study on and trends in transportation accessorial has been published to help evaluate fuel surcharge The report, an annual study by a transportation management services and technology provider, includes from more than 150 and over $12 billion in annual spend. It identifies the customary of charges and rates implemented by beyond the basic linehaul to help organizations better how their accessorials compare to competitive standards.

Observations the accessorial benchmark study

Fuel Surcharge Schedules: The revealed that fuel (FSC) is the most common published by shippers (93 percent of in the study), with the vast utilizing a cents-per-mile-based schedule a percentage-based fuel method. For companies using the cents-per-mile most still peg their FSC point around the traditional to $1.24 range. The vast (73 percent in total) were evenly split between and $.06 increments beyond the peg. The trend is towards brackets, a recognition of both the burden of fuel in overall costs and the significant increase in miles per gallon for truckload fleets over the past few

Intermodal fuel surcharges also included in the study, that the surcharges between the and intermodal can vary as much as and as little as $0.12.

“A minority of shippers are the same surcharge programs for as for truckload, when an optimized FSC is generally half that of the FSC,” said Ben Cubitt, vice president, consulting for Transplace. “This indicates they still have not into their FSC schedules the economic efficiencies of intermodal vs moves.”

Detention with Under the current hours of environment, time equals for carriers. Consequently, detention is an accessorial to manage. Not only is accessorial important for carriers to but also shippers, who need to their detention policies to they are not requiring nonstandard times for carriers, which result in penalties and overall to carrier capacity. The study

81 percent of companies are keeping to the industry standard by allowing two free detention, with five percent of companies less than two hours

companies (66 percent) pay in increments of 15 with an additional 26 percent of paying by the hour. This is up from the 2011 study, reported 60 percent of companies in 15 minute increments and 30 percent by the hour

Detention charges have stagnant over the last two ranging from $25 to $90 per hour, most shippers allowing $60 per

Stop-off Charges: For truckload stop-off charges were for stops one to four on a given Fifty-six percent of shippers an increasing charge per stop while the 43 percent balance a flat charge per stop various levels between $50 and The most common stop-off is $100 for the first stop, for the second stop, and $250 for stop thereafter. This shippers are migrating away low, flat stop-off which do not accurately reflect the cost per stop.

Truck Order Not Used: For that do not use a truck to which tendered a load, “truck not used” charges typically The study showed that of the 64 of shippers who apply these 43 percent utilize a $250 with $150 being the most common level at 39

Other accessorials benchmarked in the include: layover, insurance, and unloading, re-consignment, detention power, layover, hazardous out-of-route miles, customs, service, undelivered, redeliver, maximum, pallet jack, proof of delivery and congestion.
