Fuel surcharge

GLS charges a fuel surcharge because fluctuating crude oil prices have a significant impact on the total price of transport, and therefore also on parcel delivery costs.

When calculating the diesel surcharge, GLS uses the data published weekly by the Czech Statistical Office (ČSÚ) (CZSO). Based on this, GLS determines the current diesel surcharge for the next time period at the beginning of each month.

The fuel surcharge is calculated transparently and displayed separately from the basic transport price on the invoices. Prices for shipment via the GLS ParcelShops and the online portal e-Balik already include the surcharge.
