Currency supplement for cross-border traffic
For cross-border shipments, most of DHL Global Forwarding Norway's costs are invoiced in Danish kroner (DKK) and euros (EUR), while we invoice our customers in Norwegian kroner (NOK). For most of our customers, we charge for cross-border traffic a floating currency surcharge. For a few customers, currency changes have been included in our prices.
We are now in an extreme situation where the krone has become weaker than what we have included in our calculations. We therefore see ourselves having to introduce a temporary currency supplement for those of our customers who do not have a floating supplement and who are billed in Norwegian kroner (NOK). At the end of May, the increase compared to the 2022 average was equal to 16.3% against the euro and 16.1% against the Danish kroner.
The extraordinary supplement will therefore be set at 16% and it will be applied from 01.07.2023. The supplement will be valid until we see a need to change based on the development in currency going forward.
Additional diesel surcharge
Since the introduction of the additional 6% diesel surcharge on March 14, prices have continued to rise. We therefore have to increase the supplement to 10% valid from and including Monday 27 June.
We follow the development in diesel prices closely and will adjust the surcharge up or down if prices change in the future.
Due to the heavy increase in the fuelprices we are obliged to recover parts of this cost rise. We will have to charge a variable fuel surcharge on our Euroconnect and Euroline services.
The add-on in percentage is adjusted monthly, based on the average rate of the four weeks between the 15th each month.
Since March 1st 2013, the fuel surcharge, both domestic and international, is based on a monthly average rate from Energi og Olieforum EOF’s published fuel tariffs.

Road Tax in Europe varies depending of which Euro norm the different vehicle is registered. The Euro norm range is from 2 to 5. Euro class 2 and 3 pollute more and old vehicles will therefore have higher costs, while new vehicles in Euro class 4 and 5 pollute less and have lower costs.
A part of DHLs environmentally focus is using new trucks. We have also introduced strict requirements to our subcontractors. This means that we can limit the Road Tax (Maut) to minimum costs, which benefit both the environment and our customers.
Below, please find an overview of which countries and rates applicable for charging Road Tax (Maut).
Based on the continuously shifting in the Foreign exchange market which influence our cost estimates, we have found it appropriate to introduce a variable Foreign Currency Surcharge.
We will operate individual add-on’s for Europe (incl The Baltics), Great Britain, Sweden and Denmark.
The surcharge is set and adjusted monthly, based on The Bank of Norway’s published currency exchange.
