Fuel surcharge adjustments due to market volatility
Surely you´ve noticed the dramatic increase in fuel prices as a result of tension in the fuel and oil markets as well as the continuing local inflation. As a logistics company, this affects us significantly.
The consequences of this situation are also relevant for you—our partners—because the fuel surcharge is directly affected by the volatility of the diesel market. Therefore, we find it important to keep you informed about the changes in the process of adjusting the fuel surcharge moving forward, to keep the prices fair for you.
The surcharge amount is determined by the index of diesel prices at Czech petrol stations published daily on kurzy.cz.
Fuel surcharge of 9%, according to the price of diesel (37.57 CZK) listed on kurzy.cz.
The fuel surcharge for every submitted parcel reflects the current price level on the fuel market, and the surcharge applies to the day when the parcel is first scanned at our depot (Scan A).
The fuel surcharge applies to parcels directed to Zásilkovna / Packeta company pick-up points.
In the case of Zásilkovna Home service, fuel surcharge is already included in the service price if the parcel is scanned in CZ.
The fuel surcharge is determined every weekday according to the diesel price index at Czech gas stations (= the fuel surcharge for each submitted parcel on your invoice will always reflect the actual market price). As a result, you may see different amounts of fuel surcharge for each parcel on your invoice.
The fuel surcharge is always stated on the invoice separately.
Fuel surcharge is applied locally—the prices on the Czech diesel market are reflected in the fuel surcharge for parcels submitted in the Czech Republic and so on.
