DHL to adjust road freight tariffs

[ September 30, 2015   //   ]

DHL Freight is to “adjust” its road freight groupage tariffs up to an average of 6% from 1 October. It says the domestic and international LTL groupage market is under heavy cost pressures caused by the strong fluctuations in fuel price and available capacity; severe wage increases caused by driver shortages; minimum wage regulations and higher administration insurance and environmental fees including the reduction of average shipment sizes and increased delivery frequencies.
