Fuel Surcharges

FUEL SURCHARGE – From 1st April 2024 – 5.44%

During the month of February 2022, fuel prices rose considerably and continue to rise on a daily basis. At Graylaw International, we feel the fairest way to calculate the surcharge is to take an average the previous months fuel price and apply the relevant surcharge to the following month’s invoices. We have created a fuel surcharge escalator mechanism so it is clear to see which surcharge is applied.

So How does It Work?

We have created a matrix of fuel prices based on our fuel costs with the base rate being £0.99 per litre.

The average cost per litre for the prior month is compared to the base cost per litre to calculate a % increase.

Our fuel cost is on average 29.7% of our total cost base.

The surcharge is therefore calculated by applying 29.7% to the % increase in the cost of fuel.

Calculation - FSC effective 1st March 2024

Week Commencing 4th March 2024- 117.57ppl

Week Commencing 11th March 2024- 116.50ppl

Week Commencing 18th March 2024- 116.56ppl

Week Commencing 25th March 2024- 117.96ppl


Average 117.15 ppl

Average effective 1st April 2024 is 117.15ppl = 5.44% as calculated below and demonstrated on the Matrix Table

Please note that we will not apply a fuel surcharge unless prices increase by more the 3% of our base price of 99.00p per litre
