GLS charges a fuel surcharge because rising crude oil prices have a significant impact on the price of transport, and therefore also on parcel delivery costs
The basis used by GLS France for the calculation of the fuel surcharge is the previous months average pump price of diesel excluding VAT, published by the Comité National Routier ( CNR ).
In Addition, GLS France takes the share of fuel cost for transportation carried out by vehicles of less than 3.5 t and trucks into account.
Once the data for the previous month is published by the CNR, GLS determines the fuel surcharge for the current month. It is disclosed separately and transparently in invoices.
