What is it

Fuel price variations have probably the biggest impact on the costs of logistics companies. Due to the constant dynamics of fuel prices, we are not able to determine base tariffs for transportation of freight and parcels. Seeking to protect our clients against frequent recalculations of prices, we apply a fuel surcharge.

Fuel surcharge is a tax that is added as an extra to the price of a service and may change (increase, decrease, or be cancelled altogether) depending on the change in fuel prices.

The fuel surcharge has been applied at Itella Logistics UAB since 1 March 2011; therefore, the fixed base price of diesel fuel is 1.187 EUR/L.
