Information on the Diesel surcharge

Calculating the diesel surcharge

When calculating the diesel surcharge, GLS Austria bases its calculations on an index that is determined using the “Fuel Price Monitor” published by the Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth (BMWFJ) in Austria.

Fuel Price Monitor

GLS Austria determines the index and thus the diesel surcharge for each month. The last published index value from the previous month forms the basis for calculating the surcharge for the current month.

The index from May 2005, which corresponds to a diesel surcharge of 0%, serves as the starting point for the overall calculation of the GLS diesel surcharge.
