Labor surcharge

Methodology of calculating the labour force charge:

-       The basis for the labour force charge is the average gross salary in the transport and warehousing sector as calculated by Statistics Estonia. The charge shall be calculated on an annual basis.

-       The average gross salary in the transport and warehousing sector as of 1 January 2016 was €1,061 (base amount).

-       The average gross salary in the transport and warehousing sector in the second quarter of 2017 was €1,216.

-       Calculation of labour force charge: percentage changes in the average gross salary in the transport and warehousing sector compared to the base amount multiplied by a coefficient of 0.4*

*The coefficient reflects the calculated share of labour costs in the cost structure of DPD Eesti AS.

-       The minimum labour force charge is fixed at 5.8%.

-       The labour force charge applies to all services and extra services purchased by the clients of DPD Eesti AS. The amount is added to the net amount of the service invoice (amount without value added tax).

-       The labour force charge shall be adjusted every year in January and we shall set out the exact rate on the website www.dpd.ee. The next adjustment shall take place in January 2019.

-       DPD reserves the right to change the basis for calculating the labour force charge without providing further advance notice thereof.
