Emergency Situation Surcharge Adjustment – Effective July 1, 2020
Given the significant impacts of COVID-19 on the global aviation industry and in order to help us maintain reliable and high quality delivery services for you and your customers, DHL Express introduced a temporary Emergency Situation Surcharge in early April.
Since the onset of this global pandemic, DHL teams have been working around the clock, adapting and adjusting the operations of our global network to align with new developments, regulatory requirements and constant changes in capacity and demand.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE EMERGENCY SITUATION SURCHARGE
As market conditions continue to evolve with the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Emergency Situation Surcharge will be adjusted downwards effective July 1, 2020.
This adjustment reflects changes in market dynamics and air capacity availability. Given expected reductions to our additional costs out of China and Hong Kong, we will make a downward adjustment for the following origin/destination combinations:
- China to Europe/Americas/Rest of World: from € 1.80 p/kg to € 0.90 p/kg
- China/Hong Kong to Australia/New Zealand: from € 1.80 p/kg to € 1.65 p/kg
Below, you will find the details of the adjusted Emergency Situation Surcharge per origin and destination combination.
