It’s no secret that fuel cost has fluctuated wildly in recent years. Changes in fuel cost have an enormous impact on any industry that uses gasoline vehicles. At R Courier, we’re doing everything we can to provide our customers with the highest quality courier services at a reasonable cost, though this will occasionally involve fuel surcharges. Here’s everything you need to know about why your next delivery may cost more in the coming year.
What’s to Explain about Fuel Surcharges?
It would be easy to state plainly to our customers that our fuel surcharge exists to help ensure you continue getting the best service without interruptions, but having more information can help you make better choices regarding your required services.
When you’re working with a company that offers the best delivery time and care, you’re also working with a company that provides vital services in critical situations. At R Courier, we specialize in providing deliveries to medical professionals and any other situation where delivery speed could be a matter of life and death. Fuel surcharges are worth every penny for those requiring a medical courier service that can get their package from point A to point B more quickly than any other option.
How the Fuel Surcharge Works
Nonetheless, it costs money to fuel the vehicles that our couriers use to guarantee fast shipments to our customers. Our fuel surcharges change according to the prices reflected at the gas pumps. Our team has no desire to charge any more than is necessary, which is why it is easy to see that the extra cost involved in surcharges goes directly to fuel our vehicles.
How to Keep Track of Our Fuel Surcharge
If you are used to using our website to track your shipping, it will also be easy to keep track of any fuel surcharge changes that may take place. Our fuel surcharge price is set at the beginning of each month. Before the change occurs, you can visit the R Courier website for information on the upcoming fuel surcharge set to go into effect that month.
How Does the Fuel Surcharge Help Our Drivers?
Our R Courier delivery drivers need to be able to focus on getting shipments to their destination rather than whether or not they have to worry about fuel costs. Our system works this way to reflect our commitment to our customers and our commitment to providing the most secure, most reliable and fastest courier services available.
How does the Fuel Surcharge Help Customers?
Our system reflects market prices in an effort to keep costs as low as possible for our clients. It is also designed to avoid rapid changes in pricing with an aim to maintain stable costs and keep customers informed about changes in shipping costs.
