In order to be more closely aligned with other transportation companies, Saia, Inc. made a revision on its fuel surcharge program, effective, February 02, 2015.

1. Effective date of the Fuel Surcharge application is Monday, February 2, 2015.

All charges for line haul transportation resulting from rates and/or charges, named in this tariff or contracts or other tariffs subject to this tariff, are hereby or will on their effective dates be increased as of provided below.

In applying the provisions of this item, first determine the applicable line haul charge including all applicable increases and/or discounts, if any. The net line haul charge so determined will be further subject to the surcharge provided herein. Fuel surcharge will apply on redeliveries.

The net line haul charge will be subject to a fuel surcharge as provided below (See notes A and B). The amount of the fuel surcharge will be determined by the U.S. National Average On-highway Diesel Price as provided by the U.S. Department of Energy (D.O.E.). The current On-highway Diesel Price may be obtained by calling 1-202-586-6966 (24 hours per day).

The U.S. National Average On-highway Diesel Price announced each Monday will be utilized to determine the applicable fuel surcharge, which will be adjusted up or down on the succeeding MONDAY based on the above referenced U.S.D.O.E. On-highway Diesel Price. EXAMPLE: D.O.E U.S. National Average On-highway Diesel Price announced on MONDAY, 01-26-2015, will be used to determine the Fuel Surcharge which will become effective on MONDAY, 02-02-2015.

If you have any questions concerning the fuel surcharge, please contact your Saia Sales Representative.

Based off the D.O.E. U.S. National Average On-highway Diesel Price
