GM slashes its fuel surcharge for truckers

by Canadian Shipper

In response to fluctuating fuel prices, General Motors has reduced the fuel subsidy it pays to truckers.

Those Tier II and truckload service providers currently being paid under the authority of the five per cent Canadian surcharge will see their tariff rolled back. All shipments made on or after Aug. 14, will have the surcharge cut by more than half — with the auto giant slashing support to two percent.

“General Motors will continue to review fuel prices on a monthly basis and make changes as appropriate,” says Cliff Gilroy, director of material transportation for GM North American Logistics.
