HaulageRates

Haulage rates have been established by the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure for the haulage of specified Soil, Rock and Aggregate materials, as well as Asphalt Concrete. These rates are paid to truckers for performing services on behalf of the province.

A comprehensive review of rates is performed by the department annually.

The following table provides links to current year and prior year Haulage Rates, average increases/decreases applied and the effective date of each Rate Schedule.

*RATE REVISION: On May 27th 2022, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure revised the rates that were originally posted for May 2022 to reflect a higher 25% average increase on rates over the previous year. The Department also established a Fuel Escalation Surcharge, the details of which are below. The revised May rates are retroactive to May 1st and supersede those that were previously posted.

Diesel Fuel Escalation Surcharge

Beginning in June fuel will be monitored for increases from the benchmark fuel price of $2.00/Litre. Base rates will be increased by 1.5% for each 10 cent incremental change in the price of diesel above the $2.00 benchmark. Fuel prices will typically be reviewed every other Thursday and any increase will become effective the following day and will remain in effect for a 2-week period. However, if there are significant changes to the price of diesel or the price of fuel appears very volatile, fuel prices may be reviewed more frequently.
