Fuel Surcharge Reduced AGAIN, To $0.25

With gas prices continuing to plummet to multi-year lows, we are sharing the savings with our clients. Our per-invoice fuel surcharge is now just $0.25, the lowest it has been since our fuel surcharge policy was implemented. 

 
 

It wasn’t too long ago that reducing the fuel surcharge below $2.00 per invoice seemed like a big deal!
 
The most recent PADD Data for New England prices our average fuel cost (a weighted mix of gasoline and diesel) at $2.11 per gallon.

Heads Up NYC – Here Comes The Pope!

You may have heard… New York is welcoming a very special guest this week. While we are all excited, we also ask that you plan ahead. If you are located in Manhattan, expect a ton of security and congestion towards the end of this week.

We ask that you place your pantry supply orders today or tomorrow – deliveries in many parts of Manhattan this Thursday and Friday may range from difficult to impossible.
