Fuel Surcharge

Fuel Surcharge

Iron Mountain applies a fuel surcharge that is adjusted monthly. Adjustments to the fuel surcharge basis will be effective the first of each month and posted 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 2020 is based on the November 2020 National U.S. Average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price.

You can access the On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices to reference the U.S. Department of Energy's National U.S. Average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices for the reported diesel fuel pricing information.

Fuel surcharge percentages and thresholds are subject to change without prior notice. If the fuel surcharge price basis rises above $5.70 per gallon, or there are changes to the percentages and thresholds, the table will be updated.

Examples

Assume that your contracted trip charge is $30. If the average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price was $2.52/gallon for a measurement month, the surcharge (applied to the month that follows the measurement month by two months) would be 6.50%. In dollar terms, that would be $30/trip X 6.50% = $1.95/trip surcharge.

For a shredding customer, the surcharge will be applied to your shredding services. If you have a shredding service charge of $60, the surcharge would be $60 X 6.50% = $3.90/shredding service surcharge.

If the average On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price went to $3.00/gallon for a measurement month, the surcharge would be 8.50% and, using the same calculation, the surcharge would be $2.55/trip or $5.10/shredding service.
