Fuel surcharge

Every month DPD publishes the monthly fuel surcharge for transportation by road and air.

You’ve no doubt noticed at filling stations that fuel prices fluctuate. DPD passes on these variable fuel prices as a surcharge on the parcel price for all our national and international products.

Fuel surcharge types

Parcels of DPD are transported both by road and by air. Due to fluctuations in fuel prices, DPD will regularly publishes the fuel surcharge.

We distinguish two different fuel surcharges:

  1. BFuel surcharge for road transport - diesel fuel. The basis of this surcharge is the consumer price of diesel fuel for the Netherlands, including the levies and taxes as published by the Europese Commissie.
  2. Fuel surcharge for transport by air - kerosene. The basis of this surcharge are the kerosene prices. The surcharge is linked to the monthly average of the daily price of a barrel of kerosene (aircraft fuel - U.S. Gulf Coast). The surcharge is calculated and published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration on a monthly basis..
