Alliance Healthcare – Fuel Surcharge Re-introduction
On 1 July 2018, Alliance Healthcare re-introduced a fuel surcharge.
Fuel is a significant cost to a business of our scale and scope and we monitor its cost on a regular basis. We have shielded our customers from price increases for the last two years, however this is no longer sustainable. Therefore, in line with the market, increasing diesel prices and to continue providing the high levels of service our customers expect, we have unfortunately had to re-introduce this charge.
The surcharge will only affect customers that purchase products outside of our solus agreements within a given month. We are pleased to be able to exempt all customers spending over £10,000 in that month on non-solus products from this charge.
We commit to being open and transparent on any surcharge we apply, which will be reviewed on a monthly basis. Customers will be charged one month in arrears and diesel prices used for the calculations will be in accordance with the approved monthly statistics on the AA website page as follows – http://www.theaa.com/driving-advice/driving-costs/fuel-prices
The fuel surcharge will be levied based upon the below criteria and will be updated regularly:
So for example, the latest diesel price (for March 2019) was £130.3 p/litre. This would have equated to a £17.00 (exc. VAT) charge.
