GLS charges a diesel surcharge because of the fluctuation of the crude oil prices which has a significant impact on the transport costs.
When calculating the diesel surcharge, GLS uses the "Diesel" motorist price index from the "Verbraucherpreisindex für Deutschland" (Consumer Price Index for Germany, Fachserie 17, Reihe 7) published each month by the Federal Statistical Office.
Once the index is published, GLS determines the current diesel surcharge on the basis of the following table. As of that point in time this surcharge will be used for the invoices and will be disclosed separately and transparently.
The current amount of the fuel surcharge is 10.5 %.
|at least...||but less than...||Diesel surcharge in %|
GLS reserves the right to change the reverence value of the diesel surcharge and the diesel surcharge table without prior notice and to decide on the amount and duration of the surcharge.
