Exchange rate on 1 March:
= difference 12.0%
Figures show that the share of the costs calculated in Swiss francs is 40% for groupage. For LTL / FTL this is 25%.
Example:Based on the rate of exchange on 1 March 2015:Shipments < 2,500 kg: 12% x 40% = 4.80%Shipments > 2,500 kg: 12% x 25% = 3.00%
Calculation on 1st of April 2021: Shipments < 2.500 kg: 8,49% x 40% = 3,40%Shipments > 2.500 kg: 8,49% x 25% = 2,12%
Calculation on 1st of March 2021: Shipments < 2.500 kg: 9,24% x 40% = 3,69%Shipments > 2.500 kg: 9,24% x 25% = 2,31%
