Fuel Surcharge Update
Dec 19, 2014
Re: Fuel Surcharge
To: Alberta Licensees/Retailers
Fuel Surcharges reflect the variable nature of fuel costs. The contracts with Connect Logistics Services’ (CLS) carriers include a fuel surcharge and, with the recent decrease in diesel fuel prices, this fuel surcharge has decreased. 
Therefore, effective Jan 4, 2015, the Fuel Surcharge will decrease from $0.20 to $0.17 per case. 
Connect Logistics will continue to review the Fuel Surcharge Rate on an ongoing basis. This, and any future changes, will be reflected on your invoice. 
Our surcharge rate will reflect the charge from our carriers which is based on the Freight Carriers Association Rates. 
If you have any questions regarding this please call CLS Customer Service at 1-800-265-6784 or email

Wine merchants warn of skyrocketing costs under new pricing scheme (with video)

No joke: Costs could jump for higher-end bottles starting April 1, and critics say B.C. could lose even more business to Alberta

A $40 bottle of wine in B.C. will cost as much as $56 next year if the province goes ahead with a new wholesale pricing system.
That was the warning Wednesday from Vancouver wine industry lawyer Mark Hicken, who feels the wholesale price model that takes effect on April 1, 2015 has serious flaws.

B.C. liquor changes will mean higher prices for consumers
“A liquor store is where they collect taxes for the government and also sell liquor." – Anonymous
It will cost consumers cash to pay for the B.C. government’s misleading “modernization” of liquor pricing – and more convenience will come at a hefty price.
That’s definitely not the message B.C. Liberal Attorney General Suzanne Anton wanted you to hear last week – but higher prices for wine, beer and spirits are the inevitable result of the most sweeping liquor changes in decades.
