ABC fuel surcharges explanation:

Unlike most transport companies out there; we aim to remain transparent on how we calculate our fuel surcharge.

Annually in April when we publish our new rates we factor the current fuel price per litre into our calculations. For the current financial year the base fuel price is R12.89 per litre.

For every 25c or part thereof increase above our base price we implement a 1% surcharge. This applies across all services.

See grid below for previous surcharges applied.
