Fuel surcharge

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

On the 15th of every month GLS Netherlands calculates the fuel surcharge. This price is based on average diesel prices, published by Transport and Logistics Netherlands (TLN).

GLS determines its rates according to calculations by Panteiea/NEA. In the 2017 calculation Panteia/NEA expected an average diesel price of € 1.0871 (exclusive VAT). For every increase of € 0.025, GLS Netherlands charges a surcharge of 0.25 % per BusinessParcel, EuroBusinessParcel or ExpressParcel, 0.50 % per BusinessFreight and 0.75 % per EuroBusinessFreight.
