Fuel Levy

Dear Valued Customer,

The annual CPI figures have been posted on the Australian Bureau of Statistics web site.

As of 1/9/18 ABS Transport will be increasing rates by 3.53% (last increase 1/7/17). This calculation is based on the Australian Bureau of Statistics recommendation of 5.2% CPI minus 32% that is related to fuel costs.

We will also take this time to restructure our rates and fuel levy and start using the Victorian Transport Association fuel levy (currently 14.86%) and will be reviewed each month based on the report that is posted on their website. We will advise you of the new months fuel levy on approx. 25th of each month along with a copy of the table from their website.

By using this independent fuel levy calculation it will allow us to be transparent with our fuel levy changes and save any discrepancies/disputes around fuel costs.

Base rates will remain at this level for 12 months.

Thank you for your continued custom as we service your transport needs into the future.

FUEL LEVY IS CALCULATED MONTHLY AND IS STATED ON ALL INVOICE STATEMENTS
