Standards for customers

Below, you can find everything you need to know about our fuel clause, marine insurance and terms & conditions.

Standard Fuel Clause

Our monthly fuel surcharges are based on the average automotive diesel price of 0.429 euro per litre (excl. tax), alongside monthly diesel oil retail prices from the European Commission’s Market Observatory for Energy. The surcharge fluctuates on a monthly basis and will not be negative.

To balance any variation across Europe, we base our fuel mechanism on the average monthly fuel prices in five countries. For each 2.5 Eurocent deviation from the base reference price, the fuel percentage is adjusted (up and down) by 1% for road transportation and 0.5% for rail transport.
