This intermodal fuel surcharge is to recover some of the increased operating expense related to significant increases in diesel fuel, new regulatory compliance cost and increased costs related to a tight domestic trucking supply.


If any mitigation and/or delay of the increase is confirmed, we
will pass this along as applicable.

We appreciate your support. Please do not hesitate to contact your local CTI representative if you have any questions or need additional information.
