[ July 8, 2019   //   ]

DHL Freight is to introduce a peak season surcharge between September and December 2019 averaging 4% to full-truckload, part-truckload and less than-truckload services in EuropeThe operator says this will enable it “to provide its customers with the highest quality of service even as demand continues to outpace available capacity”. 

It adds: “The shortage of drivers and constantly increasing road freight demand are further constraining the available capacity. We therefore expect capacity challenges similar in 2018. We have and will secure additional capacities for our customers. However, to ensure the high level of service quality and reliability our customers expect, we have to add a Peak Season Surcharge of average 4%.”
