My corporation issued 13 courier contracts to Black Frog, totaling over 3.5mil m3, from 2 different low sec stations. Amazingly, they completed all contracts within 36 hours. Their members were also very helpful in providing advice for setting up the contracts in their chat channel.

Just saying that i love you guys. I have used you mutiple times with multiple chars (this being my Jita alt) and have always been a happy customer.

I once forgot to put a (1.5 billion) collateral on my contract... and it was delivered within 3 hours and i was reminded of my ... mistake in a nice, professional manner.

Much love for all frogs.

I have used this service over a dozen times, contracts were usually completed within 1 day, dirt cheap for me not having to travel anywhere. Highly recommended.

Lots of new pilots to help keep the goods flowing where you need them.

The queue is rather long at the moment. Thanks for your patience, folks!

Thanks for your patience indeed!!

Our queue has exploded over the past two weeks. We are seeing crazy growth in the number of clients, destinations, and contracts. So much growth that we are having trouble keeping up. On average, we deliver more contracts per day now than we used to move per week. We have begun an active hunt for new pilots, have already added several, and have a few more ready to go sometime in the next few days.

Tips for Faster Contract Acceptance:
1. Keep the total contract volume under 335k m3. Less than half of our current pilots can handle contracts in excess of 340k m3.
2. Nosec contracts wait longer than losec contracts. Nosec systems with active conflicts, heavy camping, and the like take longest of all. Generally, Stain contracts take longer than other nosec contracts, because of the extreme distances.
3. Don't shoot the cynos. Stations/systems/corps/individuals who get a reputation for shooting our cynos will find their contracts take longer. We don't care that you're shooting them (we're big boys and we factor the cost in), but it does make it a pain in the ass to help you.
4. Don't over collateralize. You don't want to under collateralize, but using max collateral when it isn't necessary can slow things down. Contracts with 3 billion or more collateral take longer because fewer pilots have that much liquid ISK.

We would like to thank all of our new clients and all of our old clients for helping to make Black Frog such a success. We are working hard to get our delivery times back down to our pre-March numbers.

Queue is back down to a size that will see quick delivery times. Most outstanding contracts are under 24 hours old.

Hello everyone!

This note is to give you a heads up on our change in pricing structure, effective immediately. For over 18 months of operations, Black Frog Logistics has not raised its prices. But the cost of doing business has risen dramatically:

  • Jump Freighter prices are now 3-4 billion ISK more expensive, raising the entry bar for new pilots.
  • PLEX prices are now over 500M -- 150M more than a year ago.
  • Isotope (fuel) prices have risen dramatically, doubling our fuel bills. Contracts to distant 0.0 regions were sometimes barely covering their fuel costs.
  • Business is booming, but attracting new recruits is an ongoing issue.
  • We're spending long times hauling through hisec, which can easily be accomplished in a regular freighter instead of a specialised jump freighter.
  • A lot of clients are using 1.5B collateral, when their goods are worth much less than the collateralised value.

For these reasons, we've made the following changes:

  • We have reduced the standard collateral to 1 billion. As always, if you have more expensive goods you are still able to increase this up to a maximum of 5 billion for a small fee.
  • Contract rewards are now calculated using fixed base fees for losec or 0.0, with a variable fuel cost component based on the distance in light years between the pickup and destination (per 11.25 light years, or part thereof)

If you are accustomed to buying in Jita and setting up your contract to a destination system that is a long way from The Forge, we recognise you'll notice a significant increase if you continue to set your contracts up from Jita as before. One way to minimise the effect of the fuel costs will be to arrange highsec portions of your trip yourself, or with the help of Red Frog Freight. For example, all losec systems are within 11.25 light years of at least one highsec station, so if you use Red Frog to move your goods to/from the highsec station, the cost of moving 1 billion ISK of goods to or from losec will rise by a very modest 5M ISK. You can use the tools at evemaps.dotlan.net to find a suitable hisec station to set your contract to/from.

Common stations you might like to try setting up contracts to/from for cost minimisation are Zinkon (Aridia, Khanid, Fountain, Delve), Stacmon or Adacyne (Placid, Syndicate, Outer Ring), Nonni or Torrinos (Lonetrek, Pure Blind, Venal), Hek (Metropolis), Teonusude (Molden Heath), Berta (Derelik, Curse), Arnola (Great Wildlands).

Our goal is simple: bring the rewards back in line with both inflation and our costs, while simultaneously making hauling freight sufficiently profitable that we can attract new recruits. We believe the changes will both increase contract completion speed and reduce the average length of time a contract waits in the queue, which is win win for everyone.

We look forward to continuing to assist you with your logistical needs throughout losec and NPC 0.0. If you need any further help in setting up contracts, please look us up in channel 'Black Frog'.

Fly safe!

Blackfrog has been an excellent service, and I support this change so they can continue to operate.

Also....I know why JF prices have gone up.... Not because of me, but I will still not divulge this information. And of course we all know about the fuel cost changes.

The pricing change has been long overdue. I always figured they must be nuts to ship stuff from a station delve to Jita for the same rate as shipping it to the nearest high sec.

I'll probably switch to setting up contracts to the nearest high now :P

Absolutely agree 100% with these price changes, Ive always said that you guys are way too generous. FedEx on steroids.

One day I contracted like 3bil worth in BPOS n forgot to put a collateral and they STILL delivered it to null in literally, less than 24 hours. I know they have always been fast, but that was just ridiculous. lol Thanks frogs. <3

All contracts are moving very quickly now. The recent price increases haven't slowed demand, but they have had the effect of reducing our delivery times. We are still seeing crazy growth in the number of clients, destinations, and contracts and we would like to thank all of our new clients and all of our old clients for helping to make Black Frog such a success.

Delivery times are short this weekend, so get those contracts in now!
