System fuel surcharge configuration

As the costing is an line costing on the booking how your system fuel surcharge is configured will effect whether a fuel surcharge will be added on this charge.
In the control panel > administration > services you will see the International surcharge base. This sets on what figure fuel is calculated.

Base tariff only means fuel will not be added on any additional costings you may on to the job such as Non Docs, Brexit Surcharge, DDP Admin etc.

Base tariff and Ndocs only means fuel will be charged only against the tariff charge and non docs, not extras such as Brexit Surcharge, DDP Admin etc.

Total Retail Price means fuel is added to every additional costing on the job such as Non docs, Brexit Surcharge, DDP Admin etc. 

Therefore if your system is set to fuel on "Total Retail Price" you will need to either enter your DDP admin supplement Net Fuel or continue charging manually for this.
