For many years a drastic price increase in crude oil prices is recorded. The future development is difficult to predict. With the currently achieved price level, however, the end of the price spiral seems not yet been reached. The consideration of the currentcrude oil prices in our pricing is inevitable, since we can absorb these cost increases only in part through rationalization measures.
For this reason BurSped decided in June 2008 to impose a separately surcharge, which is based variable on the diesel pricechanges and will be charged as a percentage of net freight (including further surcharges).
The index-based fuel surcharge of BurSped is determined from the "Verbraucherpreisindex für Deutschland" (Consumer Price Index for Germany, Fachserie 17, Reihe 7) published each month by the Federal Statistical Office. Rotational basis (usually every 5 years) is a revision of this consumer price index instead. In the course of this revision, the base year of 2005 was changed to 2013.The exact procedure of this revision, the explanation of the Monthly Bulletin January 2013 the Federal Statistical Office are removed.
The calculation of the diesel surcharge based on the index value of 75.01 points. Depending on the evolution of this index also developed the diesel surcharge. Accordingly, the fuel surcharge is reduced to 0% if the base value of 75.01 points is reached again.
Exclusively caused by the diesel price increase additional costs are passed on via the index-based fuel surcharge. A diesel priceincrease of 10 cents caused in our company additional costs of approx. 1.83% and reflected at the Federal Statistical Office in anindex change of approx. 9.45 points again. Consequently, collected in an increase in the diesel price index by one point each, a diesel surcharge of 0.1936%.
Consumer price indices are published monthly by the Federal Statistical Office. As of the publication date of the new dieselsurcharge is determined and then from 1 of the following month valid. You can check the current surcharge here at any time.
