Due to technical issues at the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the release of the Weekly Average Diesel Fuel Index has been delayed. ArcBest and its subsidiary companies will continue to use the 6/13 average of $5.718 per gallon for the weeks beginning 6/20, 6/27 and 7/4.

Based upon the currently reported U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index, ABF's fuel surcharge is now applicable. Current fuel surcharge: Loading...{{vm.currentCharge}}

The level of the fuel surcharge is adjusted on Wednesday based upon the U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index of the prior Monday. If the National Average Fuel Index is not updated on the prior Monday, the next updated National Average Fuel Index posted prior to Wednesday will be used to calculate the fuel surcharge level for that week beginning on Wednesday and ending on Tuesday of the following week. In the event the National Average Fuel Index is not updated by Tuesday of the current week, the last available index of the prior weeks will be used. This index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy, is available by telephone at 202-586-6966 and on their Internet site.

The fuel surcharge will be shown as a separate entry on our freight bill and will be applied to all line-haul charges, with applicable discounts, but not to special service charges.

For further explanation, see the ABF Rules and Special Service Charges Guide Item 161.

*When diesel fuel prices equal or exceed $5.00 per gallon, the LTL fuel surcharge continues to increase 0.1% with every one-cent increment. For example, when the index is at least 500 but less than 501, the LTL surcharge will be 42.6% and when the index is at least 501 but less than 502, the LTL surcharge will be 42.7%.

*When diesel fuel prices equal or exceed $5.00 per gallon, the TL fuel surcharge continues to increase 0.2% with every one-cent increment. For example, when the index is at least 500 but less than 501, the TL surcharge will be 85.2% and when the index is at least 501 but less than 502, the TL surcharge will be 85.4%.

*If diesel fuel prices drop below $1.50, an updated fuel surcharge table will be issued.
