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 two surcharges: the road energy surcharge for road shipments and the air energy surcharge for air shipments. The surcharges are based on the current market price of the underlying fuels and energy sources, and are recalculated once a month.

Important notice

Important notice

As of 1 April 2022, the diesel and eMobility surcharge and the kerosene surcharge will become the road energy surcharge and the air energy surcharge, respectively. In order to respond to the fluctuating and sharply rising costs of fuels and energy sources for our fleet, the surcharge will in future be based not only on current diesel and kerosene prices but also on the development of electricity and gas prices on the market. The energy surcharge will continue to be designed dynamically and will be charged per parcel shipment.

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.
