What is the Fuel Surcharge policy?

We apply a fuel surcharge that is adjusted monthly. Adjustments to the fuel surcharge basis will be effective the first of each month and publicly posted here approximately two weeks prior to the effective date.

The fuel surcharge is indexed to the National U.S. Average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices reported by the U.S. Department of Energy for the month prior to the adjustment. For example, the surcharge for December 2015 is based on the November 2015 National U.S. Average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price.

Effective January 2016, Iron Mountain will be amending the fuel surcharge table for the first time since its inception in 2007 to more closely reflect the operational changes to our transportation services that have transpired during that time period. These changes have affected the amount of fuel consumed when performing customer services. Please be assured that we will continue to evaluate all factors to identify and deliver optimal performance while controlling costs.
