How the FSC is calculated

The FSC is calculated based on the Yamato Transport Europe Fuel Surcharge Index (Y-FSC Index). This index is based on the USGC oil price two and half months before our surcharge is effective. (For example: Jan 2015's rate was based on the USGC oil price as at Nov 2014. Referring this cost to the table below will give you the applicable FSC rate) The FSC is applied to shipping (freight) charges only. It is not applied to ancillary or other charges.
