What is Breakthrough Fuel Recovery? A Market-Based Approach. 

See how one of the fastest and most influential programs will drill down into the costs affecting your transportation by looking at the way you calculate fuel costs

How Using Actuals Over Averages Reduces Transportation Costs

You cannot manage what you cannot see, and that’s why traditional fuel reimbursement programs that use the DOE index skew the actual costs your organization pays to move goods through the supply chain. Current energy indices publish a weekly price that is not reflective of your individual transportation network and results in a fuel surcharge. When you use average numbers, you get average results, and only by shifting to a market-based approach can shippers feel confident their fuel costs are precise and accurate. 

It’s time to move past the averages provided by the DOE Index Program. Breakthrough’s Fuel Recovery program delivers real transparency into the cost of fuel and helps shippers save millions in transportation costs by eliminating distorted and outdated practices.
