Surcharges

Fuel Surcharge

Alaska Air Cargo's Fuel Surcharge methodology is based on the Platt's Los Angeles Mean fuel index and therefore allows us to better correlate the Fuel Surcharge with our actual fuel costs. We adjust the Fuel Surcharge based on certain sustained variations in this index. We will provide two weeks' notice of any adjustment on our Fuel Surcharge web page where you can always find the most current pricing information.

All shipments in the Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air Cargo network are currently assessed a $0.18 per pound USD Fuel Surcharge. The Fuel Surcharge is calculated based on the shipment's actual weight and is subject to taxation.

Notice of Additional Security Screening Fee

Due to evolving security upgrades, Alaska Air Cargo will be implementing a Security Screening Fee (XBC) as outlined below.

Effective June 1, 2014, the Screening Fee will be assessed on all GoldStreak, Animal Express, and Priority and General Freight shipments, including all Specific Commodity Rates.

The fee will be in addition to our current Security Surcharges.

Please note that shipments tendered under the TSA Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) are exempt from the Security Screening Fee and Security Surcharges.

We appreciate your continued business.  If you have additional questions please refer to www.alaskacargo.com or contact your local Cargo Sales Manager.
