AMSOIL is implementing new Canadian freight and handling rates effective January 2, 2012. While rates have increased slightly for some provinces they have decreased for others and overall, enhance convenience for Dealers, Preferred Customers and accounts.
The old rates depicted estimated freight and handling costs only, meaning the actual cost is unknown until orders are shipped. This prevents Dealers from giving accurate quotes and sometimes causes price discrepancies for accounts and customers. The new rates depict actual freight and handling costs, allowing Dealers and customers to know the exact freight and handling charge prior to placing the order. Shipments to a small minority of outlying areas remain subject to additional interline fees.
The listing of Canadian Freight and Handling Rates is available on the AMSOIL website.
At the end of the day for a customer who orders a case of oil and two oil filters the shipping and handling cost is going to be $8.08 in Toronto – see the Canadian Freight and Handling Rates for postal codes of “Toronto” locations near the distribution centre. I’d say the locations could be best described as GTA.
In the rest of Ontario the S&H will be $15.20 as that order will be in the 21-40lbs range.
