Dear customers and partners,
over the past few years we have managed to keep our trucking prices at an almost stable level and have compensated any price fluctuations that occurred. For months now, prices at the fuel pumps have been rising to new record heights and there is no sign yet that the trend is easing off.
Our calculations shows that the price increase of the last few weeks can no longer be compensated. We have to take this development into account; however, rather than an across-the-board increase in trucking prices, we intend to adjust the prices by introducing an Energy Surcharge which is dependent on the actual prices of fuel.
This Energy Surcharge will be introduced from
July 1, 2012
The Surcharge has been determined and defined on the basis of diesel fuel price development, as published by the Association of the German Petroleum Industry (Mineralölwirtschaftverband, MWV), and the consumption values given by truck manufacturers.
Please also inform your colleagues and employees about this Energy Surcharge, which has unfortunately become necessary.
Thank you for your understanding.
Contargo GmbH & Co. KG,
