Energy surcharge.

The current surcharges for your parcels in road and air transport at a glance.

In order to counter the fluctuating and rapidly rising costs of fuel and energy sources for our fleet, DPD applies different surcharges for road and air transport: the "road energy surcharge" and the "air energy surcharge". The surcharges are based on the current market price of the underlying fuels and energy sources as well as on the price trends for electricity and gas. They are recalculated once a month.

This is how the energy surcharge is composed

In times of climate change, we as a logistics service provider are called upon to reduce CO2 emissions - while at the same time parcel volumes are rising sharply. This is why we levy a dynamically designed energy surcharge: the share of diesel for road transport or kerosene for air transport, as well as for gas and electricity, included in the surcharge is based on the current market price. Together we are working hard towards achieving the climate-friendly logistics of the future.

The energy surcharge is updated monthly and shown on your invoice as a road energy surcharge for road shipments and as an air energy surcharge for air shipments.
