    As you guys have probably seen the diesel prices are going up more everyday. I would imagine with all the storms down south there going to keep going up.

    When do you start implementing this fee?

    Any insight would be helpful.

    So every load you take brokered or direct customer you automatically add the fuel surcharge?

    Yes always add a fuel surcharge find out what the national fuel surcharge rate is and go with that. Now Procter & Gamble usually pays about $0.13 higher than the national fuel surcharge but I would guess it's got to be at least $0.20 per mile.

    . I've been off the road for seven years I was in a motorcycle wreck which rendered me and paraplegic. But I'm in the process of looking for a Hotshot setup and putting a driver in it to drive for me so the Hotshot business is new to me but seems to be a lot like expedite Freight like I used to haul in an 18-wheeler for Landstar Express America Panther 2 and Tri-State. Which I just found out that my installer has a Hotshot division
