Frequently Asked Questions
How is Freight Assist Australia’s Fuel Levy Surcharge Calculated?
The below calculation relates to our fuel levy surcharge that is added to all freight rates.
Fuel Levy = ((((CF/1.1)-CR)-BF)/BF) *0.32
CF = current fuel (national average diesel price as published by AIP for each week ending of the previous month divided by the number of weeks)
CR = diesel fuel current rebate
BF = base fuel (when FAA started applying fuel levy; this is a net value, ex rebate and GST)
What Defines Dangerous or Hazardous Goods?
Dangerous goods and hazardous include substances or articles that have hazardous properties that can have the following consequences if handled recklessly:
- Decay of metal or skin
- Pollute the environment
- Become unstable if mixed with other chemicals or products
- Explode or make an explosive mixture
What Does the FAA Group Require to Transport Your Dangerous Goods Legally?
Before FAA can ship your goods, the shipper must supply the following details:
- Class and subsidiary risk
- UN number
- Quantity of goods being sent
- Number and type of packages sent
Any other information that you provide that gives insight into the nature of the product is also warmly welcomed and is recommended to add to the description. All the above information must be supplied on a shipping docket, accompanied by an emergency procedures guide for our drivers and warehouse staff. These can be obtained from the manufacturer of the product or Standards Australia.
How Are Charges Calculated for Shipments by Weight?
For larger lightweight shipments, our Gold Coast shipment rates are calculated on the greater value between the shipment’s actual weight and the volumetric weight measures in kilograms.
To calculate the volumetric weight, simply multiply the WIDTH by the LENGTH by the HEIGHT of your shipment (in metres) by 333.
Our volumetric (or cubic) conversion factor is 333 kilograms per cubic metre.
E.g., 0.8 * 0.5 * 0.7 * 333 = 93.24 kgs
