The fuel surcharge applicable to the services of DHL Parcel is based on European index for diesel price.

In Europe, the benchmark index is the General Directorate of Energy and Transportation of the European Commission published in the Oil Bulletin.

There will be a two month delay in the index application. For example, the average monthly fuel price in January is used to determine the applicable surcharge for March. This is due to data launch dates.

The fuel surcharge applies to the transportation charges of all services and the following taxes (where applicable):

  • Remote Area Service
  • Saturday Delivery
  • Non-Standard Collection
  • Difficult handling
  • Shipments too heavy
  • Shipments too large
  • Month Surcharge
    November 2020 7.75%
