Stop Overpaying for Fuel

Shippers have the economic responsibility to pay for the fuel used to move their products to market. For the last 40 years, the transportation industry has utilized a national average to calculate the cost of fuel, resulting in distortion and the inability to manage costs. Fuel Recovery changed all of that. Breakthrough® enables shippers to reduce the fuel cost, consumption, and emissions in their supply chains.

Unlike an Index-based surcharge program, Fuel Recovery accounts for the time, tax, price, and geography specific to each shipper’s individual freight movements. Fuel Recovery calculates the cost of fuel accordingly so shippers can be certain they are reimbursing their carriers a fair amount.

ELIMINATE TIME DISTORTION

Fluctuations take place in the wholesale diesel market over the course of each week. Breakthrough®Fuel clients know that fuel prices change every day and translate that into daily savings with Fuel Recovery.

ELIMINATE TAX DISTORTION

Taxes vary dramatically by state and have a huge impact on fuel price. Index-based reimbursement programs do not accurately account for taxes by state, the way that carriers pay taxes. Fuel Recovery accounts for all taxes – including real-time changes – with our reimbursement methodology.

ELIMINATE PRICE DISTORTION

Despite the current low-price environment, price distortion in the DOE Index has more than doubled since the inception of Breakthrough®Fuel. This means your opportunity for savings is increasing even in a relatively low-price environment.

ELIMINATE GEOGRAPHICAL DISTORTION

Regardless of the prevailing market conditions, regional volatility plays a major role in each market. Common drivers of regional volatility include refinery maintenance mishaps and weather events. Fuel Recovery accounts for these differences in regional pricing in real time, ensuring that you and your carriers are understanding and paying for the true cost of fuel.

With Fuel Recovery, shippers’ fuel expenses are reflective of the expenses their carriers incur when purchasing fuel. Managing and reimbursing for fuel with a market-based approach, not a retail index, will lower your overall spend immediately. After your true consumption and costs are aligned with your freight movements, further improvements can be made to achieve continued savings.
