2017 Connect Logistics Service Rate Structure

The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) Board has approved the 2017 Rate Structure proposed by Connect Logistics Services Inc. (Connect).

In the 2017 budget, which is provided to the AGLC as part of the agreement, Connect has made a concerted effort to reduce costs across the business in order to maintain rates where possible. However, in 2017 some key rates will increase by approximately 1.0% to cover additional supply chain costs. Attached for your information is a schedule of the rates effective January 1, 2017.

Please note the rates on the attached schedule are now inclusive of a fuel service charge (FSC). Connect has revised the methodology for calculating the FSC with its contracted Carriers in order to make the calculation more favorable to the industry.

Connect will continue to support the open Alberta liquor model by offering superior service at the lowest possible cost to Retailers, Agencies, and Suppliers in Alberta.

Please contact Connect Logistics Customer Service at 1-800-265-6784 or email: Robert.McDonald@exel.com should you have any questions.
