A fuel surcharge and an environmental surcharge will be combined into a single surcharge for parcel products in 2023.

An energy surcharge will be launched on 1 January 2023. It consists of the variable fuel surcharge (monthly) and the fixed environmental surcharge. The environmental surcharge will be 3.25% from 1 January 2023.

Similarly, from 1 January 2023, energy surcharges will be calculated for MyPack Home DK, MyPack Collect DK, MyPack Home Expert and MyPack Collect Expert.

The energy surcharge will appear on your invoice specification as the total sum of the fuel and environmental surcharges.

Why do we apply a fuel surcharge?

Like the rest of the transport industry, we are quite vulnerable to fluctuating fuel prices, and we have seen these fluctuations become increasingly greater over the years, also within the individual years.

By indexing part of the transport price against a fuel price index, we render pricing more transparent. This enables the surcharge to rise and fall during the agreement period without affecting your customer agreement, and it is otherwise itemised separately on your invoice.

How do we set the fuel surcharge?

The fuel surcharge is set according to various price indices depending on the product.
 

Parcels

The fuel surcharge for parcels is based on the average consumer price trend for diesel in the preceding month before publication (example: the fuel surcharge for March is indexed on the basis of the average list price from 21 January to 20 February.

You can see the consumer price for diesel on the website www.drivkraftdanmark.dk (Drivkraft Danmark). The energy prices for mobility, heating and processing are published on this website on a daily basis.
