Fuel Surcharge

• Diesel surcharge

In recent months, oil prices have fluctuated dramatically.

Unfortunately, the continued rise in the price of diesel and kerosene now compels us to introduce an index-linked fuel surcharge on the package price.

DPD has introduced a variable fuel surcharge. This means that we will adapt the surcharge to reflect future fluctuations in fuel prices.

• Fuel surcharge for road haulage

The fuel surcharge applies to all national and international products and is based on the average diesel prices including tax and duty. The index-linked surcharge is based on the market price of Brent crude oil in London. Crude oil is the raw material for the production of both diesel and kerosene, and thus serves as an appropriate starting-point for the index for road haulage and air freight. The surcharge is based every month on a rounded average of the market price of a barrel of crude, as published by the U.S. Department of Energy. ( www.eia.doe.gov)

The way in which we calculate the surcharge ensures a fair and transparent mechanism for the fuel surcharge that we charge you, and will be indicated separately on your invoice.

• The fuel surcharge for road haulage applies to the following products:

  • DPD CLASSIC
  • DPD GUARANTEE
  • DPD 10:00
  • DPD 12:00
  • DPD 18:00
