What is a Remote Area Surcharge (RAS)?

by cdatwood
You are here:

A surcharge is applied per shipment when the delivery destination or pick up location is remote. Remote is defined as islands and highlands; or a post code/zip code that is difficult to serve; or a suburb/town that is distant, inaccessible or infrequently served. PSCSHIP will inform you if your destination requires a remote area surcharge when calculating your quote.
