1.26% from 5th January 2018

The attached Fuel Levy Index, which is available from our web site shows the actual price that Circle has paid for derv fuel and the average price paid over the past 3 months, three reference periods.

Our flexible fuel surcharge levy scheme was introduced on the 1st August 2005 on the basis that it would be a fair and transparent system for our clients to monitor the price we pay for our fuel relative to our current tariff. As already mentioned, these figures are available for inspection on our web site.

To remind you of this scheme, our current published rates are calculated using our standard fuel benchmark by applying 0.48% increase for every 1 pence over 97 pence per litre (ppl) 

As Circle Express purchases its fuel on a weekly-based price, adjustments would be made both downwards as well as upwards, depending on the price of oil.

The latest reference period which is relative to November confirms that the average fuel costs to us has now exceeded our standard fuel benchmark of 97.0 ppl.    The attached graph shows that it opened at 98.97ppl and closed at 99.69ppl giving us an average of 99.63ppl over the term which will attract a 1.26% Fuel Surcharge across all of our services from the 5th January 2018

Just as a reminder, we should have been charging a 0.38% FSC in December but decided to hold the 0.0% enjoyed in November.

I thank you for your continued support of Circle Express and I remain available to answer any queries you may have. I can be contacted on 01753 214638.

Please circulate to all appropriate departments

Yours faithfully


Fleet Director
