DX Express: Fuel Surcharge on DX Courier & DX Secure Services
Read about our fuel surcharge background, policy and current ruling price.
- Diesel prices represent a highly significant element of our overall cost base.
- We seek to offset cost increases through improved efficiencies, however, they are such that they must be passed to our customers as a fuel surcharge
- In establishing this fuel surcharge, we seek to be:
- Comparable with our competitors and market practise
- Clear and consistent: surcharges are based on average prices published by the AA
- Fair and honest: surcharges go up and down in line with published prices
The policy for DX Courier and DX Secure Services
- All customer contracts will include a base price for diesel
- As each customer’s invoice is raised the ruling price for diesel published by the AA will be compared to each customer’s base price:
- For every 1p / 1 cent (or part thereof) upwards movement in published pence per litre diesel prices, DX apply a 0.175% fuel surcharge to each invoice
- For every 1p / 1 cent (or part thereof) downwards movement in published pence per litre diesel prices, DX will apply a 0.175% reduction in your Fuel Surcharge till the Surcharge reaches 0 – at which point there will be no surcharge applied to your invoice
- At every annual price review, existing fuel surcharges/rebates will be rolled into the delivery tariff and the base price for diesel will be reset to the ruling market price at the time.
