Fuel surcharge and road tax
GLS Denmark charges a fuel surcharge as oil prices are of great importance for transport prices and thus also for the cost of parcel distribution.
Information on the fuel surcharge is presented separately and transparently in GLS' invoices.
The fuel surcharge is adjusted every month and can move between min. 8 % and max. 13 % for national parcels.
For international parcels min. 16 % and max. 26 % and for other shipments min. 9 % and max. 15 %.
|Month||National parcels||International parcels||DirectSolution and pallets|
|August 2020||8.31 %||16.62 %||9.31 %|
|Juli 2020||8.03 %||16.08 %||9.03 %|
|June 2020||8.00 %||16.00 %||9.00 %|
|May 2020||8.00 %||16.00 %||9.00 %|
Information on German road tax
In Germany, the government has levied a road tax for a number of federal roads. This means that all transports to and from Germany are charged with this tax.
GLS Denmark passes on this tax for parcels transported via Germany. The current amount of tax is DKK 1.63 per parcel and will be invoiced separately in invoices.
