Fuel clause

The surcharge is based on the prices for “Automotive gas oil” (excluding duties and taxes), as published weekly on the website of the European Commission. To balance differences in fuel prices across Europe, our clause is based on the weighted average prices in the “Euro Area 19”.

The base reference price is the fuel price of 2 July 2012: € 0,70409 per liter diesel.

For each 5,0 eurocent deviation from the base reference price, the surcharge will be adjusted (up and down) with 1%. The percentage will not be negative.

The surcharge will be determined every 25th day of the month (or on the Monday thereafter if this is during a weekend) based on the average fuel price of the last 4 publications. It will be applicable during the entire subsequent calendar month.
