Actual Fuel Surcharge

The amount of fuel surcharge has been calculated as follows:
August 2021: 4.2 %, September 2021: 5.2 %, October 2021: 5.3 %.

The actual fuel surcharge is based on the average diesel price in Czech Republic according to the Czech Statistical Office.  The rate of the fuel surcharge in the current month is determined by average diesel prices with a two-month delay from the transport. For example, fuel surcharge valid in May is based on average diesel price in March.
