FUEL SURCHARGES
Fluctuating costs for the transport industry

The fuel surcharge for DHL Parcel services is based on the European index of diesel prices. Within Europe this is measured by the European Commission Directorate General for Energy and Transport and published in the Oil Bulletin.
There is a two-month delay in the application of the index. For example, the monthly average price for fuel in January is used to determine the applicable surcharge for March. This is due to the release dates of spot pricing data.

The fuel surcharge applies to transportation charges on all services as well as to the following surcharges (where applicable):

  • Remote Area Service
  • Saturday Delivery
  • Non Standard Pickup
  • Over Handled Item
  • Over Weight Item
  • Over Sized Item
Month Surcharge
November 2018 10.75%
October 2018 10.50%
September 2018 10.25%
Month Surcharge
November 2018 6.00%
October 2018 6.00%
September 2018 5.50%
