Move Up

Inland Operational Surcharge – UPDATE Effective February 26, 2021

Why are we increasing this surcharge?

  • Due to the current trucking and driver shortages in the entire United States, it has become more difficult to obtain a driver to pick up a load. Because of that, demand is high, and the supply is extremely low, causing trucking to become more expensive for both Tropical and for our customers.
