Fuel and sulphur surcharge

PostNord is applying the conditions for Fuel and Sulphur surcharge, which may be found in the General Terms and Conditions (PAKN) in PostNord's customer agreement. See specific conditions under the Fuel surcharge and Sulphur surcharge tabs. A different type of surcharge is applied to certain services, see the tab marked Groupage within Europe and Part loads.
Fuel surcharge
The fuel surcharge is calculated as a percentage of the freight costs for parcels, pallets and general cargo within Sweden and to Norway and InNight, both domestic and international, excluding any additional services.

The surcharge for couriers applies to surface transport. The relevant services and countries are shown in the table (PDF). The surcharge is shown separately on the invoice. The fuel surcharge will be set to zero every year with effect from Januari 1.

The percentage charge will be fixed every month using calculations based on the transport cost index (TKI) provided by Sveriges Åkeriföretag. 

Information regarding the current level of surcharges is updated here at the end of each month and will also be presented at the page Price lists for service agreement customers.
Sulphur surcharge
The new Sulphur Directive*, which came into force on 1 January 2015, regulates the highest permitted sulphur content in maritime fuel. The directive means that from the start of the year the sulphur content in maritime fuel used by shipping companies must be dramatically reduced from the current level of 1.0 % to 0.1 %.
This is why PostNord has started adding an extra surcharge applicable to certain countries for the InNight service effective from 1 January 2015. PostNord starts adding an extra surcharge to additional services and countries with effect from February 1, 2015.
The sulphur surcharge is calculated as a percentage of the freight costs, excluding any additional services. The relevant services and countries are shown in the table (PDF). The surcharge is shown separately on the invoice.

Groupage within Europe and Part loads
​To the service Road transportation within Europe, an additional weighted key ratio is applied for currency surcharge, fuel surcharge and bunker surcharge including sulphur surcharge, calculated as a percentage of the freight costs excluding any other charges. The key ratio is abbreviated to VDBS. Statoil is used as the basis for the fuel surcharge calculation. The surcharge is shown separately on the invoice.
