Since diesel prices are currently so unpredictable, it has unfortunately become just as impossible to make reliable forecasts as it has to calculate long-term freight costs. This is why our cargo invoices contain a separate variable for diesel.
Our diesel prices are always adjusted in line with the most recent data from the Federal Statistical Office of Germany. Click here for online information about average monthly diesel prices (for bulk consumers):
The reference price is €1.05/litre. We compare this with the monthly average price to determine the price adjustment (+/- surcharge), which includes a diesel component of 20%, two months later on the first of the month.
If you have any questions about this, we will of course be glad to help.
