Fuel Surcharge

The W&LE new/revised publications will be made subject to Tariff WE 40663, the mileage-based Fuel Surcharge. Any prior agreements that are still effective shall be governed by the language in the individual publications and remain unaffected by these changes.

If you have any questions, please direct them via email to MarketingServices@wlerwy.com

W&LE uses ALK Technology’s PC*Miler|Rail as its source mileage. It is anticipated that the mileage table will be updated, allowing time for programming, as updates from ALK Technologies become available.

The revenue-based fuel surcharge, published in Tariff WE 40561, will continue to be applied until the W&LE publications subject to this Fuel Surcharge expire or are extended/revised.

At that time, the fuel surcharge language may remain the same in the revised/extended publications or the W&LE may change to the MILEAGE FUEL SURCHARGE.

W&LE Fuel Surcharge tariffs WE 40561 (revenue-based) and WE 40663 (mileage) are available in the Tariff Section of this website.
