Fuel Surcharge Rate

An updated rate will be determined weekly to reflect the current diesel fuel prices reported by the Freight Carriers Association of Canada. The fuel surcharge will be applied to your invoice (based on delivery date) for Western Canadian orders. This allows us to reflect changing market conditions rapidly while maintaining stable product pricing for our customers.
