Fuel Surcharge Information

Our fuel surcharge is based on the most suitable national measure of diesel prices; the surcharge is linked to the consumer price in local currency of diesel fuel inclusive of duties and taxes and published here. This is measured by the European Commission Directorate General for Energy and Transport and published in the Oil Bulletin: 

http://ec.europa.eu/energy/observatory/oil/bulletin_en.htm 

There will be a two month lag in the application of the index; for example, the monthly average price for fuel in February is used to determine the applicable surcharge for April. This is due to the release dates of the spot pricing date.

Contracts with effective date prior to 1st August  2012: Based on the August Oil Bulletin value of £1421.69 per 1,000 litres, the October 2012 fuel surcharge will be 8.5% for domestic services.

Contracts with effective date from 1st August 2012 2012: Based on the August Oil Bulletin value of £1421.69 per 1,000 litres, the October 2012 fuel surcharge will be -0.5% for domestic services.
