Graham-Field delays fuel tariff
ATLANTA - Graham-Field announced in early September that it was holding off from passing on a 1% fuel tariff to customers until at least the end of the year. The manufacturer is delaying the increase due to Hurricane Katrina. The company raised its free freight qualifier to $500 effective Sept. 1, 2005. The manufacturer hopes efficiencies like a Web site that allows customers to track orders in real time can help it keep costs down in the future.
