Surcharges

DHL Express is committed to providing customers with the best delivery service, which is why we are continuing to offer coverage to more parts of the world than any other company.
Changes in fuel prices result in fluctuating costs for the transport industry, necessitating a variable fuel surcharge which may rise, fall or be removed, in line with movements in fuel prices.

More About Fuel Surcharge
Show Less
The fuel surcharge for International Time Definite services will be based on the daily average spot prices for US Gulf Coast (USGC) kerosene-type jet fuel, as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy between 3rd week release of prior month to 3rd week release of actual month.
For example, the daily average price for fuel from 18th of April to 15th of May is used to determine the applicable surcharge in June.
The fuel surcharge for Domestic and Day Definite services will be based on the most suitable national measure of diesel fuel prices. The surcharge is linked to the consumer price in local currency of diesel fuel inclusive of duties and taxes and published here. Within Europe this is measured by the European Commission Directorate General for Energy and Transport and published in the Oil Bulletin.
The fuel surcharge applies to transportation charges on all services and to the following surcharges (where applicable):
  • Saturday Delivery
  • Saturday Pickup
  • Elevated Risk
  • Demand Surcharge
  • Emergency Situation
  • Remote Area Delivery
  • Remote Area Pickup
  • Dedicated Pickup
  • Dedicated Delivery
  • Residential Address
  • Overweight Piece
  • Oversize Piece
  • Non-Stackable Pallet
DHL reserves the right to change the fuel surcharge index and table with or without notice. Both the amount and duration of the surcharge will be determined at DHL's sole discretion.
