The EU Sulphur Directive entered into force on January 1, 2015 and after that shipping companies started forwarding the increase in the fuel costs to hauliers, either as a part of their bunker surcharge or as a separate MARPOL surcharge.
DHL Freight Finland calculated the effect on its transports and introduced a MARPOL surcharge per traffic area as of the beginning of year 2015.
The rates are based on current information provided by the shipping companies. We reserve ourselves the right to adjust the surcharges, if the charges debited by the shipping companies change considerably. In addition to MARPOL, fuel surcharges apply as before.
MARPOL surcharges apply to Euroconnect, Eurapid, Euroline and Thermo products, i.e. groupage, part and full loads in both import and export.
Minimum: EUR 2.00 / shipment, maximum: see corresponding charge for FTL
