Fuel cost adjustment

Fuel cost adjustment is a mechanism allowing quick reaction to the changes of fuel price on the market.

Key information concerning the fuel adjustment is presented below:

  • Fuel cost adjustment automatically reflects changes of the fuel prices
  • Current fuel prices are based on wholesale prices offered by PKN Orlen and Grupa LOTOS
  • The mechanism is applied when the fuel prices rise, as well as when they fall
  • Changes of the current index are not effected after each fuel price change but only after a sensitivity threshold has been passed in the case of domestic shipment the threshold pass must be confirmed by two consecutive readings, and in the case of international shipment - within one month
  • Fuel index for the following month is determined in advance (in the 22nd day of the previous month), which allows precise planning of shipments costs
