DHL Freight introduces peak season fee

DHL Freight has announced a Peak Season Surcharge effective September to December 2019. 

The surcharge of average 4% will apply to all full-truckload (FTL), part-truckload (PTL) and less than-truckload (LTL) transport in Europe. This enables DHL Freight to provide its customers with the highest quality of service even as demand continues to outpace available capacity.

Martin Leopold, CSO DHL Freight said: “The shortage of drivers and constantly increasing road freight demand are further constraining the available capacity. We therefore expect capacity challenges similar in 2018. We have and will secure additional capacities for our customers. However, to ensure the high level of service quality and reliability our customers expect, we have to add a Peak Season Surcharge of average 4%.”

To manage the growing capacity constraints, DHL Freight has also launched a driver recruitment initiative. The pilot project is currently running at five locations in Germany. More than 50 truck drivers have been hired, and 30 brand new high-technology trucks have been deployed so far.
