Are carriers boosting low-sulphur fuel surcharges to make up for low rates?

This story is a follow up to one I did a couple of weeks ago.  Fuel surcharges are varying wildly. A consultant found that there’s a wide disparity, the rate rationale is not very transparent, and rates vary even within alliances.   Conditions like this lead to confusion and annoyance among customers, especially smaller shippers.  I expect 3PLs will also be annoyed, but they will be figuring out how to explain the surcharges or where to hide them in their reselling agreements.  It doesn’t make for great credibility among the ocean carriers.
