With diesel prices at an all time low compared to recent years, what does this mean for carriers? When diesel prices were high, carrier who had better fuel mileage often made money off their fuel surcharges. Now that diesel prices have dropped, can carriers still make money off fuel surcharges? Indeed they can! Carriers who have vehicles that average more miles per gallon or efficiently use fuel can still profit from their fuel surcharges. Here are some tips on how to practice good fuel usage. First, reduce your speed! Reducing speed significantly reduces fuel usage on both freeways and city roads. Second, increase your take off time. The faster you take off from a stop, the more fuel you use; thus, taking off slower will save you fuel.
