About our Variable Fuel Surcharge

Fuel represents a significant variable cost in the provision of transportation services. Employing a variable fuel surcharge allows Novex to avoid frequent changes in its base shipping rates and allows the overall cost of shipping to vary (both up and down) with the market price of fuel. Although Novex utilizes gasoline and diesel in the provision of its services, Novex’s fuel surcharge is adjusted monthly, based on changes in the market price of unleaded gasoline in order to provide Novex’s customers with an easy to understand basis for changes (both up and down) in Novex’s fuel surcharge.

The fuel surcharge applies to all courier and freight shipments tendered to Novex regardless of destination and is applied to the sum of the base shipping rate and additional weight charges.



Weekly prices will be based on price published by MJ Ervin & Associates, a research company that monitors and analyzes the price of gas in cities across Canada. The updated fuel surcharge rate will be available to you on www.novex.ca.. This fuel surcharge will apply only to vehicle deliveries and will not apply to bicycle deliveries.
