ReformTrucking Fuel-Surcharges

The trucking industry initially created fuel Surcharges to off set the raise in fuel expenses not computed into original trucking rates. This fuel surcharge is currently NOT given in full to the owner of the truck incurring the fuel expense, AS INTENDED, instead it is kept in whole or in part by brokers and Companies as income, leaving the owner of the truck unable to collect the monies designed to help offset the cost of fuel. By Signing, I Agree that Laws Are Needed to Pay ALL Fuel Surcharges Directly to the Owner(s) of the Truck Responsible for Purchasing Fuel. Fuel Surcharges should be kept separate from rates, with NO percentage deducted from broker fees as originally intended upon it's creation. This Law is imperative in keeping trucking a vital part of our ecomomy.
