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 fuel surcharge is levied per parcel and displayed separately on invoice attachment.
Calculation of the fuel surcharge
GLS Hungary calculates the fuel surcharge monthly according to the NAV index. Once the fuel price is published, GLS determines the current surcharge.
The diesel price of HUF 270 serves as a starting value for the calculation. So the fuel surcharge is 0 when the diesel price is HUF 270.
GLS Hungary charges an additional HUF 9 per domestic parcel and 1% per export and import parcel per diesel price increase of HUF 10.
