Fuel surcharge.

The current surcharges for fuel, e-mobility and kerosene at a glance.

In order to counter fluctuating fuel costs and to promote sustainability in logistics operations, DPD levies two surcharges: the fuel and e-mobility surcharge for road transport, and the kerosene surcharge for air transport.
The fuel and e-mobility surcharge is based on the current fuel price on the one hand and on our commitment to e-mobility on the other. The kerosene surcharge is calculated on the basis of the current kerosene price.

The composition of the fuel and e-mobility surcharge is as follows

In times of climate change we as a logistics service provider have a duty to reduce emissions, but the challenge is to do so while parcel volumes are rising sharply at the same time. For this reason we levy a dynamically designed fuel and e-mobility surcharge, with a fuel proportion which is based on the current fuel price. If this proportion decreases, the remaining amount automatically flows into the expansion of our e-fleet and the development of sustainable logistics concepts. Together we are committed to the climate-friendly logistics of the future.
