We would like to inform you that for the period beginning January 1st, 2024, our Inland Fuel Surcharge (IFS/EFS) for Canada will be $0 USD. Please note that for contracts beginning on or after January 1, 2023, and subject to Fuel Adjustment Factor (FAF), IFS/EFS will no longer apply for long term contracts. IFS/EFS remains valid for our short term rates and for contracts with effective start dates before January 1, 2023.

Surcharge Calculation


Our Inland Fuel Surcharge is calculated based on the weekly average fuel price published by the Natural Resources Canada. Any CAD 0.10 increase over the baseline fuel retail price of CAD 1.849 per litre will trigger a review of IFS/EFS. The calculation of cost will be based on fuel change published in Natural Resources Canada and corresponding Maersk fuel surcharge percentage. The diesel fuel price for the prior 13-week period equates to an average price of CAD 1.887 per litre compared to a baseline of CAD 1.849. Based on the prior 13-week average of CAD 1.887 being higher by only $0.038, the IFS/EFS for Canada will be $0. This reflects our commitment to utilize the IFS/EFS as means for cost recovery should the prices of diesel rise higher than forecasted rates.

Surcharge Applicability

The Inland Fuel Surcharge will not be applied should the quarterly average fuel retail price on the Natural Resources Canada Diesel Fuel Price Index CAD 1.849 per litre for Canada. When applicable, the Inland Fuel Surcharge will become effective the first day of each quarter: January 1st, April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st.
