In order to ensure operational continuity and to keep connecting the world with a high-quality service, effective 1st April 2020 we will temporarily and until further notice levy an Emergency Situation Surcharge to all Time Definite International (TDI) shipments.

This Emergency Situation Surcharge will allow us to cover part of the operating cost increases and the necessary air network adjustments during the time of this emergency situation.

Why are we adjusting the Emergency Situation Surcharge?

The adjustment reflects the changing dynamics in the market and the ongoing challenges to securing available air capacity. The adjusted Emergency Situation Surcharge will reflect the peak cost levels on different trade lanes as opposed to having one standard global charge.

Furthermore, the charging mechanism will change from a charge per shipment to a charge per kilogram (kg) in order to maintain a more gradual pricing model.

Please note that Emergency Situation Surcharge is a temporary charge, which allows us to cover part of the operating cost increases and the necessary air network adjustments. We will continue to evaluate and adjust this surcharge as market conditions evolve for the duration of this emergency situation.

In what instances will the surcharge apply?

The Emergency Situation Surcharge will be applicable to all Time Definite International (TDI) shipments.

It is not applicable to Day Definite International (DDI – road) or Time Definite Domestic (TDD) shipments. It also does not apply to our Life Science and Healthcare customers and DHL Medical Express (WMX) shipments.

We kindly ask you to ensure your invoice approval cycles & process have been updated accordingly to avoid any delays.
