Fuel Surcharge Information

All Same Day Express Shipments and Routed Shipments are subject to an adjustable fuel surcharge. This rate will be adjusted monthly as fuel fluctuates. We calculate our surcharge based upon fuel prices listed on AAA’s web site for the San Jose Metro Area. For every $0.10 the price of fuel increases our surcharge increases by 1%.

Please be aware Gold Rush Express Delivery has not increased our fuel surcharge since July in effort to retain lower costs. Due to the ever increasing fuel costs it has become necessary to return to reviewing our fuel surcharge. We appreciate your understanding.
