Fuel surcharge

DPD calculates a variable fuel surcharge on the parcel price. This price is indexed, which means that we constantly adjust it according to the fluctuating fuel prices. We state this surcharge clearly on your invoice.

Fuel surcharge for road transport

This surcharge applies to all our national and international products. We link this surcharge to the consumer price of diesel fuel in The Netherlands, including levies and taxes. The European Commission announces this price weekly. You can read all surcharge details on their website. Click on http://ec.europa.eu/energy/observatory/oil/bulletin_en.htm. for more information,
