Gasoil Fuel Surcharges

Since January 2009, petrol prices have increased strongly. This increase highly impacts our the overall costs of our activity; pick-up and delivery for air freight and ocean freight shipments are mainly handled by truck and it is this part which is impacted by increase of petrol price.

In order to control direct impacts of this increase, we assume this petrol price’s increase, optimising it as much as possible through our pick-up and delivery capabilities to make it more economical.

Due, due to the very strong increase of the petrol price, we had to implement a Gasoil surcharge on pick-up and delivery by truck, from September 2008.

For February 2017, the applicable rate is 6.00%


This surcharge will change each month (increase or decrease) and may rise, fall or be removed to align with movements in fuel prices.

In order to be fully transparent, this surcharge will be clearly displayed on your invoice.
