Where incorporated by a transportation services agreement (“Agreement”) between LaserShip and a Shipper, the Shipper shall be responsible for paying the Surcharges listed on this webpage at the time of shipping in addition to the other rates, fees, and/or surcharges specified in its particular Agreement. The Surcharges provided below are effective as of October 1, 2020.
Current Fuel Surcharge Rate:
Through January 31st, 2021: 6.50%
Effective February 1st, 2021: 6.75%
LaserShip uses an index-based surcharge that is adjusted monthly. Changes to the surcharge will be effective on the first of each month and will be posted approximately two weeks prior to the effective date. The surcharge is based on the U.S. Department of Energy's National U.S. Average On Highway Diesel Fuel Prices for the month that is two months prior to the adjustment. For example, the fuel surcharge for April is based on February’s diesel fuel average.
Ground fuel surcharge percentages and thresholds are subject to change without prior notice. If changes are made to the ground fuel surcharge percentages or thresholds beyond the listed index, the following table will be updated.
The ground fuel surcharge will be set in relation to the following table:

A Peak Residential Surcharge may be applied to residential packages shipped on or after November 21, 2020 through and including December 31, 2020 (the “Peak Period”). The Peak Residential Surcharge will apply in the amounts set forth below during the Peak Period.
During the Peak Period, a Peak Residential Surcharge will apply to all residential packages shipped in any weekly invoice period exceeding 110% of the Shipper’s average weekly residential package volume for June 2020 (May 30 through June 26) (the “Baseline Volume”), as determined by LaserShip in its sole and unlimited discretion.
If a Shipper did not tender residential packages to LaserShip prior to June 1, 2020, the Baseline Volume will be determined based on the Shipper’s average weekly residential package volume in October 2020 (October 3 through October 30).
If the Shipper’s average weekly residential package volume for September 2020 (September 12 through October 2) is less than 80% of Shipper’s average weekly residential package volume for June 2020 (May 30 through June 26), as determined by LaserShip in its sole and unlimited discretion, then the Baseline Volume will be determined based on the Shipper’s average weekly residential package volume in September 2020 (September 12 through October 2).
For holiday weeks that are not full LaserShip operating weeks (including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s), a Peak Residential Surcharge will apply to all residential packages shipped in that weekly invoice period exceeding 110% of the Shipper’s average daily residential package volume for the applicable Baseline Volume period multiplied by the number of full LaserShip operating days in that week, as determined by LaserShip in its sole and unlimited discretion.
The Peak Residential Surcharge will be assessed in addition to the Shipper’s Residential delivery fee or any other applicable surcharges. Any contracted discount the Shipper may have on the Residential delivery fee will not apply to the Peak Residential Surcharge outlined above.

The cubic size of the package is calculated by measuring the length by the width by the height in inches, of the package at its most extreme points. If the package has a bulge or is irregularly shaped, include the bulge or irregular aspects of the package. The result is the cubic size in inches.
Calculation: Divide the cubic size in inches by the DIM factor to determine dimensional weight in pounds. Increase any fraction to the next whole pound. LaserShip charges the greater of the actual weight or dimensional weight.
Size Restriction: The maximum allowable size of a shipment limits any one dimension from exceeding 42” and total size from exceeding 10,000 cubic inches, and a maximum of 50 pounds actual or dimensional weight.
