Fuel surcharge.

You're sure to have noticed it in your own company: rising oil prices are a significant cost factor. As a provider of transport services DPD is particularly affected by this. After all, our more than 20,000 vehicles throughout Europe run on diesel fuel. And in intercontinental transport by airfreight, steadily rising kerosene prices are having a strong impact.

DPD applies efficiency measures in order to offset cost increases. In addition we take the current oil price into account in calculating prices for you.

For reasons of cost, we also apply a kerosene surcharge in addition to the diesel surcharge which is standard within the industry for road transport. This surcharge is applied exclusively to air transport.
