Fuel Surcharge Monitor

The fuel surcharge is an additional surcharge on top of the transport base rate. It is dependent on the taxation and fuel price of each month. We get our information on the fuel prices from the official OK Oliecentrale website.

OK Oliecentrale displays all diesel prices per 100 litres. We calculate the average price per month and will apply it according to the table below. To ensure maximum price security and transparency, the calculation of next months surcharge will be calculated through the average fuel price of the 1st to the 26th of last month.

For example: for the surcharge of February we have calculated the average fuel price from the 1st to the 26th of January (160.44€). This is why the fuel surcharge for February will be 12%.

The fuel surcharge will always be added on top of the freight rate. It is dependent on the LOADING DATE, not the booking date.
