Fuel and road surcharge

Fuel surcharges and road toll are added to the basic net price of every shipment. The charge rate is updated every month - due to fuel price fluctuations it can decrease or increase. We communicate this in advance.

The formula for calculating the fuel surcharge and the road toll for DHL Parcel domestic courier services reflects the average retail price of diesel oil, including all taxes and charges (excise tax, fuel surcharge, VAT), in the Polish market for the given month. The index includes cost of the electronic fee collection and the toll road charges and is updated periodically.
More details about the electronic fee collection system can be found on the website www.viatoll.pl.

DHL Parcel international courier services
Fuel surcharge index for the following services: DHL Parcel Connect, DHL Parcel International, DHL Parcel Return International reflects the average retail price of diesel oil, including all taxes and charges valid in the European Union for the given month. These prices are monitored by the Directorate-General for Energy and Transport and published in the Oil Bulletin. DHL applies a two-month delay in calculating the index. For example, the average fuel price from January will be used to set the surcharge in March. This results from the cycle of making the fuel prices available.
