Changes in fuel prices result in fluctuating costs for the transport industry, necessitating a variable fuel surcharge which may rise, fall or be removed, in line with movements in fuel prices.
The fuel surcharge for international Time Definite and Day Definite services will be based on the monthly average spot prices for US Gulf Coast (USGC) kerosene-type jet fuel, as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy.
The fuel surcharge applies to transportation charges on all services and to the following surcharges (where applicable):
- Remote Area Service
- Saturday Delivery
- Non Standard Pickup
- Over Handled Piece
- Over Weight Piece
- Over Sized Piece
DHL Express reserves the right to change the fuel surcharge index and table with or without notice. Both the amount and duration of the surcharge will be determined at DHL's sole discretion.
