The transportation and warehousing industry includes companies offering air, rail, truck and waterborne transportation services.
The industry also includes transit and ground passenger, courier and messenger transportation services, along with warehousing and storage services.
For the transportation sector, managing fuel costs is a primary concern.
Fuel costs can often exceed labor costs, and companies may agree to buy large amounts of fuel at a fixed price.
Fuel surcharges are also used to offset rising prices.
