Rail Freight Fuel Surcharge Direct Purchaser Settlement


Plaintiffs claim that, from 2003 through 2008, the Defendant companies unlawfully assessed a rail freight surcharge applied as a percentage of the base rate for freight transport services purchased in the United States. The fuel surcharge was either stand-alone, or included in the base rate of the freight service. Plaintiffs claim that any person or entity that purchased Rail Freight directly from any Defendant company during the Class Period paid a higher price than they otherwise would have paid in a competitive market.
