An article at US News and World Report outlines the latest ruling by the Supreme Court, allowing Alabama to apply a fuel sales tax to rail but not to truck or barge.
Shippers are likely to see an increase in rates for movements through Alabama to make up for the new state sales tax on diesel fuel. Any time rates are changed is an opportunity for billing errors. AMTR monitors these changes to make sure every shipment has been paid correctly, small rate changes can lead to big overcharges across volume shipments!
