Questions about FSC
by: Jimmy

FSC (fuel sur charges) are given by the shipper to offset the high diesel fuel prices. Instead of raising the shipping rate, they came up with a FSC. It is adjusted with the up/down price of fuel. Now, remember, it can be manipulated easily enough, usually by a broker. (that's a shock)

If you be a O/O, you can get the straight truth on the internet somewhere on how to negotiate FSC. Jimmy
